CELF range

Overcoming language barriers regardless of age or background

Our communication journeys are unique and evolve over time from childhood to our adolescent years, dependent on our background, health and lifestyle, all of which can challenge our ability to communicate effectively through life. Early identification of language and communications needs is essential, and can significantly impact our life outcomes and educational journey.

The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (CELF) range of comprehensive tools is designed to assess expressive and receptive language, language content, structure and memory from ages 3 to 21:11.
