Scientific framework and objectives

There are few tests for the evaluation of early language abilities for French children. The French scientific community, and more importantly, practitioners working with very young children have very few test batteries or scales which can be used for early diagnoses of delayed language acquisition. Most available tests are designed for children older than three years of age and examine specifically targeted developments (cf. Chevrie-Muller & Narbona (1996) for a review). Because the role of early language behaviour has been shown to have ramifications on later development and because practitioners working with young children constantly request evaluation instruments, we judged the development of such an instrument essential. The principal objective of this research project is the elaboration of an instrument of evaluation of early language for children at 12, 18 and 24 months. With the goal of reaching a certain level of standardisation for the European French-speaking community and thanks to the participation of many paediatricians, members of the Société Européenne de Pédiatres Ambulatoires (SEPA), this instrument will allow the evaluation of children from Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Switzerland, with French as their first, or one of their first, languages. Three parental reports have been constructed based on the results obtained earlier from the French adaptation of the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Inventories (see project n° ???). Data collection has been undertaken by one hundred paediatricians, members of the Société Européenne de Pédiatres Ambulatoires (SEPA). This data collection began in April 2003 and finally 554, 357 and 385 questionnaires have been collected for respectively 12, 18 and 24 months of age.
