This popular diagnostic test evaluates the communication skills of normal and developmentally delayed children. It is composed of two sections: Receptive, which assesses sound and speech discrimination, awareness, and understanding; and Expressive, which measures imitating, initiating, and responding, as well as length, grammar, and syntax of verbal output.
Items are grouped in age-graded sets, and the percentage of correct responses in each set determines the child’s Receptive Communication Age and Expressive Communication Age. The test also generates behavior and processing profiles that are helpful in developing individualized remedial programs.
