The Overall Assessment of the Speaker's Experience of Stuttering (OASES) is a quick, easy-to-use, comprehensive tool for measuring the impact of stuttering on a person's life. OASES Impact Scores and Impact Ratings can help you qualify individuals for research or therapy, make treatment decisions, justify third-party payment, and evaluate treatment efficacy.
OASES Response Forms include age-appropriate items that examine four key aspects of the experience of stuttering:
General information about a speaker's perceptions of stuttering
- Affective, behavioral, and cognitive reactions to stuttering
Functional communication difficulties in key situations
- Impact of stuttering on the speaker's quality of life
OASES Response Forms are available in sets of 25 forms for 3 age groups:
OASES-S (School-Age, 60 items) for children ages 7-12
OASES-T (Teenage, 80 items) for teenagers ages 13-17
OASES-A (Adult, 100 items) for adults ages 18 and above
All OASES users need an OASES Technical/Scoring Manual for administration, scoring, and interpretation. The manual provides psychometric data and interpretive summaries that can be used in evaluation reports and progress notes.
