Developmental Sentence Scoring (DSS) is a useful procedure for quantifying thegrammatic structure of children's expressive language. Like most language analysis techniques, however, DSS requires considerable study and practice to use it correctly and efficiently. Clinicians learning DSS tend to make many scoring errors at first and they display similar confusions and mistakes. This article identifies some of these common "problem" areas and provides scoring examples to assist clinicians in learning the DSS procedure.
