The Renfrew Language Scales provide a norm-referenced means of assessing children’s speech and language. As they are norm-referenced, a child’s score can be compared with scores achieved by children of a similar age.
Action Picture Test
Designed to fulfil the need for a standardised test that (in a short and simple form) would stimulate children to give samples of spoken language that could be evaluated in terms of information given and the grammatical structures used.
Bus Story Test
Assesses the age level of consecutive speech used from information content, sentence length and grammatical usage in retelling a story.
Word Finding Vocabulary Test
Assesses the extent to which pictures of objects, arranged in order of difficulty, can be named correctly.
