LuCiD Seminar: Assessing babies and young children at risk of communication disorders

Prof Nicola Botting, City University, will present the next LuCiD Seminar on Assessing babies and young children at risk of communication disordersThe seminar will take place from 11-12.30 on Tuesday 6th June at the University of Manchester. This is the final seminar of the 2016/17 academic year. 


Assessing the language levels of children is always a challenge. However it is particularly difficult for younger children who are at risk of communication disorders or those for whom language learning abilities might be difficult to ascertain. Dynamic assessments, parent report measures and narrative tasks are three ways in which some of the difficulties might be overcome. This presentation will address some of the conceptual aspects of measurement as well as describing some new research which is developing tools for these populations.
