The Renfrew Language Scales provide a norm-referenced means of assessing children’s speech and language. As they are norm-referenced, a child’s score can be compared with scores achieved by children of a similar age. These language assessments are intended for use in educational settings and/or therapy contexts under the supervision of an adult. These are not toys.

The Renfrew Expressive Vocabulary Test (REV) – formerly the Renfrew Word Finding Vocabulary Test (ISBN: 9780863888076) – is a quick and easy tool to assess children’s expressive vocabulary. It is designed for children between the ages of 3 years and 11 years and 11 months and is an invaluable resource for Speech and Language Therapists, Special Educational Needs Coordinators, and other professionals engaged with language development. The REV assesses the extent to which pictures of words, arranged in order of difficulty, can be named correctly. Completely revised, this new edition has updated words and images to ensure it reflects the vocabulary of children today and has been expanded to include adjectives and verbs, in addition to nouns. The REV contains 100 colour picture cards, an instruction booklet, and a scoring form, with norms to enable users to provide comparative results. This 5th edition has been comprehensively updated and extended with the modernisation of images and words, and, through an extensive nation-wide programme, fully re-standardised against a contemporary school population, making the REV a trusted first-line tool in speech and language assessment.
