Linguistic Demands of Preschool Cognitive Assessments
MetadataShow full item record
The linguistic demands of assessments can pose significant challenges to a practitioner's ability to validly estimate a child's cognitive functioning.

The purpose of this study was to assess the linguistic demands of spoken directions for three preschool cognitive assessments.
