According to the Norwegian Framework Plan for Kindergartens (Ministry of Education 2017: 24), the staff shall ‘monitor the children’s communication and language and identify and support children who demonstrate various types of communication problems, who are not linguistically active, or who show signs of delayed language development’. As a first step in the development of an assessment tool that may meet this requirement from the framework plan, we have piloted the Norwegian parental report MacArthur-Bates CDI III (Communicative Development Inventories (Fenson et al. 2007)) with monolingual three-year-olds. The results suggest that CDI III is a reliable and valid tool for the assessment of these children’s language skills. We have also compared CDI III reports from parents and Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) staff and found acceptable correlations between the reported scores.
