The validity of the Diary of Early Language (Di-EL), a parent report technique, was evaluated with nine children with profound hearing loss using cochlear implants or hearing aids. Lexical data, reported by parents using the Di-EL, agreed with results of the Mac Arthur Communicative Development Inventories and the Rossetti Infant Toddler Language Scale, suggesting the Di-El's validity.
