The CELF-Preschool 2 is a practical, efficient clinical tool used to identify, diagnose, and evaluate language deficits in children ages 3 to 6 years. Individually administered, this assessment provides a flexible, multi-perspective process for pinpointing a child's language and communication strengths andweaknesses, and for making relevant intervention and accommodation recommendations.

  • Sentence Structure
  • Word Structure

There are also four supplementary subtests that can be used to provide additional information about the child’s language skills outside of the testing situation:

  • Recalling Sentences in Context
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Pre-Literacy Rating Scale
  • Descriptive Pragmatics Profile


AREAS OF APPLICATION

The CELF-Preschool 2 may beused by practitioners in educational settings to help:

  • Diagnose and classify language disorders in pre-schoolers
