A Play and Story-Telling Probe for Assessing Early Language Content.
Yonovitz, Leslie B.; Andrews, Kathryn R.
Journal of Childhood Communication Disorders, v16 n2 p10-18 1995
A naturalistic probe of early language content was administered to 31 normally developing preschool children. The productivity of 3 different strategies for eliciting 27 content categories was tested and the efficiency of the probe technique compared with analysis of language samples. Results suggest this nonstandardized, criterion-referenced assessment tool can enhance validity, comprehensiveness, and efficiency of evaluation protocols. (Author/DB)
