Updated by Kristie Brown Lofland (2015)
As a member of a multidisciplinary team or as an isolated professional, the SLP (speech language pathologist) often needs access to standardized assessments in language functioning, pragmatics and social skills. It is not always practical for a school district or an agency to purchase extensive speech and language assessment materials. The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community has a collection of materials that may assist Indiana speech language pathologists.

Selected speech and language assessment instruments are available for preview and loan only to certified speech and language pathologists (SLPs) who reside or work in Indiana. SLPs may wish to borrow the instruments for preview, training, or for limited use to assess students with low incidence disabilities.
The materials may be checked out for four weeks from the Center for Disability Information and Referral (CeDIR), Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, Indiana’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, 1905 N. Range Road , Bloomington, IN 47408-2601; 812-855-9396 or 800-437-7924 (toll-free in Indiana). Due to the sales agreement, a copy of the current SLP license document (i.e., teacher certification or Indiana Professional Licensing Agency) must be on file prior to borrowing the materials. Additionally, a CeDIR registration card must be completed.
Each instrument is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a waiting list for a particular item. Only three items can be checked out at one time per person. People interested in purchasing any of these instruments can contact CeDIR for ordering information. Inclusion on this list does not serve as an endorsement of the instruments listed by either by IRCA or CeDIR.
