Leonardo Guzman Hincapie Colombia 1About the project

We are carrying out a research project to develop an assessment measuring speech and language abilities in children and young people aged 5 to 21 years.


Pearson Assessment is running a new project on the standardisation of the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals – Fifth UK Edition (CELF-5UK).  By testing large numbers of children and young people we can understand how people of each age typically perform. It will then be possible in the future for health or education professionals to use these tests for a range of purposes. We will be able to tell if an individual is behind in their speech, language and communication skills compared with their peers; has a specific language impairment; and measure the amount of progress made after getting support with language and communication.
