Arabic CDIs

Arqabic CDI

Word lists for Arabic-speaking children: Our project is to design an easy-to-use vocabulary assessment tool that would allow people to evaluate the amount of words known by any Arabic-speaking toddler and to detect children at risk for a language delay amongst this population. For this, we have adapted the existing English CDI (Communicative Development Inventories) in most Arabic dialects, and we are now going to collect data all over the Arabic-speaking world to standardise it. This project targets children between 8- 27 months.
