The Test of Early Communication and Emerging Language (TECEL) assesses the earliest communication behaviors and emerging language abilities in infants and toddlers up to 24 months old. It is well-constructed, reliable, practical, research-based, and theoretically sound.
The TECEL is a revision and standardization of Mary Blake Huer’s Nonspeech Test, a well-regarded assessment used with both typically developing young children and with older individuals with moderate-to-severe language delays.
The TECEL can be used by:
Speech Language Pathologists
Early Intervention and Early Childhood Professionals
Assistive Technology and AAC Specialists
and related professionals.
It can be used to: (1) assess and chart communication and language strengths and weaknesses and design intervention plans, (2) make estimates about future language development, and (3) serve as a research tool for investigating early communication and emerging language. Proed
