Language development status at 27-30 month review, Glasgow City, 2013-2015

SSLMR bilingual

Where SSLM-R outcomes were analysed by whether children were mono-lingual or bi/multilingual a higher proportion of bi/multi lingual children were assessed as having communication delay 


The health visitor asks parents if their child can say 50 words from a list of common words.  This list is presented to the parent on a sheet of paper for identification. Having less than 32 words is suggestive of communication delay.
