Abstract

Background: Language Impairment is defined as a disorder in comprehension and/or use of spoken, written and or the symbol system (ASHA,1993). The MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory (MCDI) is a parent-reported measure designed to evaluate the communicative skills in children. Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the verbal comprehension, production, and use of gesture in children with language impairment using the adapted Kannada version of MCDI (K-MCDI). Method: The data were obtained from 15 children aged between 1-3 years and were diagnosed as having a Receptive and Expressive language delay. The Verbal comprehension, production, and use of gesture were assessed using Kannada version of the MCDI which was given to the parents in order to report the current level of verbal comprehension, expression, and gestural skills of their child. Results: The data collected was analysed and the verbal comprehension, production, and use of gestures was scored by determining the children’s performance on each section. Conclusion: This study contributes to the accumulating evidence on using K-MCDI for valid inferences for diagnostic and intervention purposes in the Indian scenario.
