Abstract Discourse abilities are a growing focus in the intervention practice of the school speech-language pathologist. However, there are few standardized tests or procedures available to assist speech-language pathologists in this important area. This article outlines one assessment package, covering narrative, meta-narrative, and expository language goals, that has been developed in therapy and collaborative teaching with students from grades two to seven.

Le discours est un élément auquel on accorde de plus en plus d'importance dans les pratiques d'intervention des orthophonistes scolaires.
Toutefois, il existe peu de tests ou de procédures normalisés qui pourraient aider l'orthophoniste dans ce domaine. Cet article décrit une méthode d'évaluation englobant des objectifs linguistiques narratifs, métanarratifs et explicatifs qui a été élaborée à partir d'expériences en thérapie et en enseignement en collaboration avec des étudiants des niveaux 2 à 7.
