This language elicitation card and questions were designed as a tool to be used in assessing language for preschool and elementary school aged children. This is a companion to SLAM Subway, but further probes inferencing, problem solving and perspective taking.
The card is meant to elicit a language sample that can be analyzed in the context of typical language development as well as the child’s background (e.g., educational experiences, family, linguistic and cultural background, etc). For this reason, no scores are included here. The card and questions are included in one downloadable pdf. The document should be printed, cut apart and pasted onto cardstock with the questions on the back for the evaluator to read.
SLAM Guidelines for Analysis have been created to aid with your note-taking and evaluation during a language sample elicitation: click here
