The Bilingual Articulation and Phonology Assessment (BAPA) is a revolutionary assessment tool for speech-language-pathologists looking for an efficient way to assess articulation and phonology. It was developed for the purpose of assessing the articulatory and phonological abilities of monolingual and bilingual speakers of English and/or Spanish. BAPA can also be used to assess articulation and phonology skills of either monolingual English speaker or monolingual Spanish spakers. Best practices for assessment of speech sound disorders for bilingual children recommends an assessment of all languages spoken by the child. Through assessing both languages, one can more easily rule out or explain second-language influences and can describe errors observed in both languages as well as those errors specific to each language. This evaluation is to be considered as part of a full speech evaluation to include: measures of intelligibility, considerations for second language influence, and considerations for the age of acquisition of each phoneme. The BAPA was developed by Barbara Fernandes, Ellen Kester, Mary Bauman, and Scott Prath, and published by Smarty Ears. The BAPA can be used with individuals of all age groups. The BAPA is compatible with the iPad running iOS 7.0 or above.

Ratings and Reviews
Ive used it as a screening tool with two students so far and I love it. Its on my ipad so its easy to take into classrooms. Kids are more engaged with IPAD pictures vs. Stimulus books. Highly recommend it. It also generates a report from the results instantly. Bonus its in English & Spanish.
My new favorite testing tool for articulation/phonology!
BAPA is incredibly easy to use and administer. It's relatively quick and keeps students engaged throughout testing. I very rarely use artic assessments other than the BAPA. Highly recommend!
I am very pleased with the ease of use, the quick results, and the detailed report. However, I cannot get it to actually email the report and that is a big inconvenience.
