Diagnosing specific language impairment (SLI) in bilingual children is a challenging task for clinicians.

Assessing Multilingual Children

After all, it requires solid knowledge of normal development in bilingual children but also of the symptoms of the impairment. This book (the outcome of a European COST project) presents a broad set of diagnostic tools that can be used in both of a bilingual child´s languages. It also supplies the scientific rationale behind the tools. The tasks described target different linguistic domains and also non-linguistic skills. Testing the child in two languages in tandem should result in a more reliable diagnostic process and prevent misdiagnosis.
