Provides a theoretically sound, research-based measure of early communication and emerging language. The test can be used to assess communication and language strengths and weaknesses, design intervention plans, and predict future language development. It can be administered to both verbal and nonverbal children, including those who communicate by means other than speech.
Use to assess and chart communication and design intervention plans, make estimates about future language development, and serve as a research tool for investigating early communication and emerging language.
Each item on the test is color-coded to indicate whether it measures receptive or expressive language skills. A score of 1 is given for each correct response, a score of 0 for each incorrect response. Item points are totaled to arrive at a raw score, which is then converted to three normative scores: percentile rank, age equivalent, and a standard index score. The child's performance is also described as falling into one of seven categories, ranging from "Very Poor" to "Very Superior."
