Description:

The Recalling Sentences subtest of the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals®–Fifth Edition (CELF®-5) is an interviewer-administered test that determines if a student has a language disorder or delayed language development. It asks a student to imitate sentences presented by the examiner. As the test progresses, the sentences become longer and more complex. Respondents are scored for the number of errors made in each sentence. CELF-5 can be scored using the CELF-5 Scoring Assistant (purchased separately).

Specific Instructions:

The Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (CELF) is a proprietary instrument. Each CELF subtest is a part of a complete assessment and is not sold separately. To administer/use a subtest requires a licensing agreement from Pearson. Researchers should complete and return an application to pas.licensing@pearson.com. For this assessment to be considered valid, the investigator should make sure that the respondent speaks English as a first language. For genetic studies, children should be assessed for hearing or nonverbal cognitive impairment as related factors. Although CELF is validated for children, adolescents, and adults, ages 5–21 years, the Speech and Hearing Working Group recommends that it be used only for adolescents and adults ages 15–21 years.

This measure is a test that assesses the respondent's knowledge of grammar.

Purpose

This measure can be used to identify respondents with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) or other categories of language impairment. Language impairment refers to problems acquiring and using language, including the inability to use correct verb forms. Language impairment can appear with or without related impairments of hearing and/or nonverbal cognition.
