Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales, Normed Edition

The CSBS™ Toy Kit contains play materials for enticing young children's spontaneous behavior and is part of the Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales (CSBS™), one of the best measures of early communication in children 8–24 months (or up to 72 months if developmental delays are present).

The norm-referenced, standardized CSBS™ uses parent interviews and naturalistic sampling procedures to collect crucial information—not just on language skills but also on often-overlooked communicative behaviors like communicative functions, gestures, rate of communicating, positive affect, and gaze shifts. CSBS™ takes just 50–75 minutes for child assessment and 60–75 minutes for in-depth scoring. Backed by technical data, CSBS™ is compatible with most developmental curricula in use today.

The CSBS™ Toy Kit includes familiar, action-based play materials and all of the toys needed to conduct an assessment. It also includes a convenient carrying bag.

Available separately or as part of the CSBS™ Complete Kit is the CSBS™ Test Kit. It contains the testing and scoring materials required for administering CSBS™.

This kit is part of CSBS™ a norm-referenced, standardized tool that uses parent interview and direct observation to assess infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at risk for communication delays and impairments. With 22 rating scales that accurately survey children's language skills and symbolic development, CSBS is backed by technical data and compatible with most developmental curricula in use today.
