The Test of Adolescent/Adult Word Finding- Second Edition (TAWF-2) is a norm-referenced, single-word expressive language test expressly designed to assess the word-finding ability of adolescents and adults.

It can be used to identify individuals who have word-finding problems, plan word finding intervention, and measure word finding ability in research studies.

Key Features

  • New noun and verb target words have been added
  • Contains both the 80-item Complete Test and the 28-item Brief Test for use with examinees or in situations where the Complete Test is not feasible
  • The lexical processing model underlying TAWF-2 has been updated to reflect current thinking regarding word retrieval
  • The Comprehension Check functions as a built-in assessment of examinees' word knowledge
  • Adolescents and adults with diagnosed word finding difficulties were included in the norming sample
  • The standardized assessment and informal analyses are integral features of comprehensive word finding assessments

The Standardized Assessment

The standardized assessment has four naming sections, the results of which are combined to form the overall Word Finding Index:

  1. Picture Naming: Nouns- assesses efficiency in naming compound and 1 to 4 syllable target words
  2. Sentence Completion Naming- assesses efficiency in naming words to complete sentences read aloud by the examiner
  3. Picture Naming: Verbs- assesses efficiency in naming present and past-tense regular and irregular verbs
  4. Picture Naming: Word Groups- assesses efficiency in naming nouns in semantic and phonemic word groups

The Informal Assessment

Five informal analyses are also provided. Three of these analyses (the Phonemic Cueing Procedure, the Imitation Procedure, and the Substitution Analysis) examine types of word finding errors individuals make.

The remaining informal analyses (the Delayed Response Procedure and the Secondary Characteristics Tally) contribute to interpreting the Word Finding Index.
