Abstract [en]

The study examined the reliability of parents' reports of their child's verbal skills. Parents to 17 children participated and completed the toddler version of the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory (CDI). It was found that the correlation between the reports made by the mothers and fathers was very strong. All in all the parents had a very similar understanding of their child's verbal skills.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersökte hur väl föräldrars rapport av deras barns språkförmåga stämmer överens. Föräldrarna till 17 barn deltog och fyllde i toddler-versionen av the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory (CDI). Korrelationen mellan mammornas och pappornas rapportering var mycket stark. Överlag så hade föräldrarna en mycket liknande uppfattning av deras barns språkförmåga.
