The Kaufman Survey of Early Academic and Language Skills (K-SEALS) is a valuable tool for testing school readiness, identifying gifted children, evaluating program effectiveness, and researching children’s early development.

K-SEALS is ideal for preschools, kindergartens, elementary schools, speech and language clinics, medical agencies, or any other setting in which young children are assessed.


  • As an expanded and enhanced version of the Cognitive/ Language Profile in the Early Screening Profiles; K-SEALS provides a more reliable and balanced evaluation in the subtest, scale, and composite content areas.
  • Assures reliable and valid scores, including test-retest stability over long and short intervals.
  • Offers greater confidence, with high-quality norms and reliability coefficients.


K-SEALS features three separate subtests for a well-rounded profile.

  • Vocabulary Subtest: The child identifies, by gesture or name, pictures of objects or actions and points to or names objects based on verbal descriptions of their attributes.
  • Numbers, Letters & Words: The child selects or names numbers, letters, or words; counts; indicates knowledge of number concepts (“smallest,” “half”); and solves number problems.
  • Articulation Survey: The child pronounces the names of common objects or actions and is assessed for correctness of pronunciation.
