The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale

The Rossetti Infant-Toddler Language Scale (Rosetti, 2006) was designed to assess the preverbal and verbal aspects of communication and interaction in young children from birth to 3 years of age.

Overview

The Rosetti is used to collect samples of behaviors on which to base conclusions about the child’s development. It uses direct observation of behavior, eliciting of behaviors, and parent reports to assess language skills. The clinician assesses preverbal and verbal skills in the areas of: Interaction-Attachment, Pragmatics, Gesture, Play, Language Comprehension, and Language Expression. Severity Rating Guidelines aid in reporting results and communicating assessment results to parents and caregivers.
