Abstract

These checklists offer a structured framework for observational assessment, focused on the child's "receptive language", "expressive language", and "social and cognitive use of language". They link directly to a resource bank of practical language teaching ideas and activities presented in the accompanying handbook and targeted on the particular problems of language-delayed children. The checklists are arranged in developmental order of difficulty and are designed to be completed over time. They also provide guidelines for referral for specialist help, if appropriate.
