This popular test identifies infants and toddlers who have impairments that affect language development. It is especially useful in implementing early childhood intervention programs mandated under P.L. 99-457.
The REEL-3 consists of two core subtests—Receptive Language and Expressive Language—and a supplementary subtest—the Inventory of Vocabulary Words. It is typically used to screen for emergent language-learning problems, support clinical diagnosis, set intervention goals, and measure delays in infants with congenital anomalies and physical handicaps. Test results are helpful in determining the effect of physical and/or environmental risks on early speech and language development.
