A widely used and reliable assessment for gaining a diagnostic overview of the language ability of children aged from 2 years to 7 years 6 months, NRDLS assesses both production and understanding of language, to help you guide intervention and evaluate its effectiveness.
NRDLS is made up of two closely aligned scales: the Comprehension Scale explores aspects of a child’s understanding of selected vocabulary items and grammatical features, and the Production Scale examines a child’s production of the same features of language.
Assessments are carried out using a mix of play-based activities that capture children’s attention, with three appealing characters that they can handle and direct to support their completion of the tasks. A Multilingual Toolkit enables you to adapt the scales for children with English as an additional language.
