BESA provides reliable assessment of language development in Spanish-English bilingual children (ages 4:0 through 6:11). Individual subtests for phonology, morphosyntax, and semantics are normed separately, so you may use each individually, or together. 

Results are reported as scaled scores, standard scores, and percentile ranks. Detailed score interpretation is provided in the manual. 


BESA differentiates limited English exposure from any underlying language impairment that may impede learning of either language. 


BESA was designed specifically for the bilingual client and was normed with a national sample that includes 16 dialects.


Complete BESA kit is only $550*

plus 10% shipping / handling
