We are conducting a study on bilingual language development. It aims to establish standard language tests for typically developing bilingual children in order to be able to detect language development delay in bilingual children.
For that purpose, we are seeking to establish standard scores for typically developing bilingual children in common language development tests: a vocabulary questionnaire that parents fill in (Oxford CDI), a vocabulary picture task (BPVS III), a word production task (SETK), and a comprehension task (a component of the Preschool Language Scales III).
Parents are also asked to fill in an additional questionnaire regarding, for instance, the exposure of their child to both (or more) languages and the number of siblings.
We are happy to conduct these tasks in your home or in our Infant and Child Laboratory (ICL) at the University of Birmingham.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Infant and Child Laboratory.
