The Prediction of Language Performance from Narrative Language Sampling

According to an article published in the ASHA Wire, narrative language sampling continues to be a recommended and evidence based practice in assessment of pediatric language disorders. In a study designed for 284 children aged kindergarten-third grade, narrative language sampling measures were obtained and assessed on a number of different parameters including a child’s number of different words spoken, their mean length of utterance, and percentage of grammatical utterances in the observed sample.
Results from this study supported that strong narrative language skills were consistently correlated with stronger vocabulary and buying Orlistat grammatical skills in participants. In addition, this study found that narrative language skills assessed in kindergarten to be longitudinally predictive of a child’s general language ability by grade 3.
