The test of cognitive skills and the test of language development-2 primary short form as indicators of language dysfunction Lindsay, Mary
The Test of Cognitive Skills (TCS) Level 1 and the Test of Language Development-2 (TOLD-2) Primary Short Form were administered to 34 students diagnosed with language disorders and 34 language normal students. The subjects were matched for age, sex and years of schooling. Both the TCS Level 1 and the TOLD-2 Primary Short Form differentiated the language disordered group from the language normal group. Results are discussed with respect to (a) differences of each of the language groups based on the subtests, (b) a significant positive correlation between the TCS Level 1 Cognitive Skills Index and the TOLD-2 Primary Short Form Quotient for the language normal group only, and (c) the applicability of the results to the screening for language dysfunction.
