Speech-language pathologists treating clients with moderate-to-severe articulation disorders need to perform phonological analyses to plan effective remediation. This article explores the possibility of using conventional tests already used by the speech-language pathologist to perform such analyses. Three frequently used testsare compared with the Assessment of Phonological Processes (Hodson, 1980) to determine opportunities for occurrence of selected phonological processes. Actual comparative test results from a preschool child are presented. Necessary changes in test administration and scoring as well as cautions regarding test comparability are included.
