LANIS screening tool-Assessment of language skills of 3-year-olds
The project aims to identify children who at the age of three have difficulties in learning language and expressing themselves. Currently there are no tools available for kindergarten teachers and parents to evaluate language skills at this age, but this tool fills that gap. Such a tool will enable earlier measures to stimulate language development at an age where this may significantly improve future language ability. The scanning tool is in Icelandic, but it has been translated into Polish and English and is being tested in these three languages, more translations are planned.
