Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive.

Spanish Articulation Measures (SAM)

Mattes, L. J. (1995). Spanish Articulation Measures (Revised Edition). Oceanside, CA: Academic Communication Associates.

SAM is designed to identify a variety of problems affecting speech production in young children (ages 3 and older) who are Spanish-speaking. SAM is comprised of four measures that assess 18 Spanish consonants. This instrument is administered individually and should be used in conjunction with data obtained from other assessment instruments and conversational speech samples. Results can be used to plan instruction and remediation activities. SAM was extensively field tested in bilingual education programs in California.

SAM was developed primarily for use by speech-language pathologists. Classroom teachers and paraprofessionals can be trained to administer the measures under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist.
