Assess the preverbal and verbal aspects of communication and interaction in young children
The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale is designed to provide the clinician with a comprehensive, easy-to-administer, and relevant tool to assess the preverbal and verbal aspects of communication and interaction in young children.
The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale is a criterion referenced instrument that assesses Interaction-Attachment, Pragmatics, Gesture, Play, Language Comprehension, and Language Expression.
Behaviors can be directly elicited from the child, directly observed, or reported by the parent or caregiver to credit the child’s performance. All carry equal weight when scoring the scale. Results reflect the child’s mastery of skills in each of the areas assessed at three-month intervals across developmental domains tested.
Interaction Attachment: This subtest assesses the cues and responses that reflect a reciprocal relationship between the caregiver and the child
Pragmatics: Assess the way the child uses language to communicate with and affect others in a social manner in this subtest
Gesture: This subtest assesses the child’s use of gesture to express thought and intent prior to the consistent use of spoken language
Play: Assess the changes in a child’s play that reflect the development of representational thought with this subtest
Language Comprehension: This subtest assesses the child’s understanding of verbal language with and without linguistic cues
Language Expression: Assess the child’s use of preverbal and verbal behaviors to communicate with others
