Who can be assessed using the GAPS test?

Any child between the ages of 3 and 6 can be assessed using the GAPS if you wish to have a quick and easy assessment of their grammar and phonological abilities. For children falling into this age range standardised scores are provided.

Heather van der Lely's aim is that all children in the UK will be tested prior to or when they enter school to try to ensure that any child with language weaknesses or impairment or at risk for dyslexia is identified.
