Status Information


Term Description

The Speech and Language Assessment Scale (SLAS) is a 19-item, parent-report questionnaire designed to identify children with delayed speech and language skills. The SLAS uses seven-point Likert-style questions to assess six subscales: assertiveness, responsiveness, semantics, syntax, articulation, and talkativeness. The protocol includes instructions to generate composite scale scores. In order for Speech and Language assessments to be considered valid, the investigator should make sure that the respondent speaks English well. The respondent should have hearing and cognitive ability adequate for understanding the items and evaluating the child's speech and language ability. For genetic studies, children should be assessed for hearing or nonverbal impairment as related factors that can contribute to low performance. Language impairment can appear without these factors but if these factors appear, the genetics of the language impairment may be confounded with the genetics of the related factors.
