The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale identifies preverbal and verbal language development problems in infants to three-year-olds. It is a criterion-referenced measure that assesses interaction-attachment, gestures, play, language comprehension, and language expression.
Behaviors can be directly elicited from the child, directly observed, or reported by parent/caregiver. Results reflect the child’s mastery of skills across developmental domains. The test items guide the clinician in directing and structuring observations in order to monitor the child’s language development.
The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale has six subtests:
- Interaction Attachment
- Language Comprehension
- Language Expression
This test is a criterion-referenced assessment, not a norm-referenced instrument. Criterion-referenced tests evaluate the subject’s mastery of specified behaviors. Such tests are only to provide information for instruction, not to compare students with each other.
This test does not yield standard scores, age-equivalents, or percentile ranks.
