For What Ages Can the VB-MAPP Be Used?

The VB-MAPP can be helpful for an individual of any age whose language skills are not commensurate with those of a 4-year old typically developing child. Keep in mind that typically developing 4-year-old children have fairly sophisticated language skills – they have a speaking vocabulary of over 1200 words, say over 15,000 words a day, use complete sentences, tell stories, and their vocabulary grows everyday without formal language instruction.

The Barriers Assessment and the Transition Assessment components in the VB-MAPP may reveal problems that affect individuals of any age, such as prompt dependency, difficulty adapting to change, when demands weaken the learners motivation, as well as behavior problems and difficulties with instructional control.
