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


Where SSLMR outcomes were analysed by whether children had English as their first or additional language , 21% of those children with English as their first language were assessed as having communication delay as opposed to 33% of those children with English as an additional language


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.
