This article describes a method for assessing children's production of certain grammatical structures, including noun and verb markers, pronouns, negative forms, and interrogative inversion. The method can be used for ongoing assessment in therapy and is designed for children whose mean-length-of-utterance falls between 2.0 and 5.0 morphemes. It incorporates information from both the normal language development literature and an individual child's performance to help the speech-language pathologist make remediation decisions for that child.
