Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals - Fourth Edition UK (CELF-4 UK)

The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals - Fourth Edition UK (CELF-4UK), features a new approach to assessment that enables you to accurately and reliably assess a child's language difficulties. Combine core subtests with supplementary subtests to get a comprehensive assessment of a child's language skills as you create a pathway to intervention.

With improved diagnostic power, CELF-4UK uses a four-step assessment approach to identify children with language disorders quickly and with confidence.

You can administer the core subtests, four of CELF-4UK's most discriminating subtests, to get a Total Language Score which determines if a problem exists.

Going beyond the core subtests, the next step in the CELF-4UK assessment process helps you to determine the nature of the language disorder: the child's language strengths and weaknesses, Receptive Language and Expressive Language Scores.

Also, new to the CELF-4UK, are additional composite scores in:

  • Language Structure
  • Language Content
  • Language Content and Memory
  • Working Memory Scores.

Further testing with the following supplementary subtests also enables you to determine what critical clinical skills and behaviours underlie the child's language disorder:

  • Phonological Awareness
  • Rapid Automatic Naming
  • Digit Span
  • Sequences
  • Word Associations
  • Memory Composites.

The CELF-4UK provides a bridge to classroom language and broad-based IEP planning. You can use the Observational Rating Scales (ORS) and the Pragmatics Profile as descriptive measures of a child's academic and social language learning needs.

CELF-4 UK has been used by The Communication Trust as part of their Talk of the Town Project.
