The ALDeQ-NL becomes multilingual
The parent questionnaire ALDeQ-NL helps to identify multilingual children with a language development disorder. With the support of HaBilNet, a team of speech therapists at Thomas More college is working on the translation of the ALDeQ-NL into 10 different languages, with a read aloud function. This makes it easier for parents who are not proficient in Dutch to complete the questionnaire. Download the Dutch project summary here.
