We are developing a novel standardized assessment of language skills – the Russian Child Language Assessment Battery (RuCLAB). It includes 11 tasks that assess children’s phonological, lexical, morphosyntactic, and discourse skills in comprehension and production. RuCLAB was normalized in a group of 3-to-11-year-old typically developing children. It was used to measure language abilities in children with DLD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and Down syndrome. https://www.hse.ru/en/neuroling/cla_korablik
