Welcome to the LITMUS Sentece Repetition tasks 

Sentence repetition tasks have been shown to be very sensitive and specific in identifying children with language impairment. The LITMUS sentence repetition tasks were constructed using a set of principles to provide comparable results across languages. This allows multilingual children to be assessed in all languages they speak. Difficulties in more than one language would strongly indicate language delay or impairment; typical performance in the dominant language(s) and difficulties in their non-dominant language(s) would indicate low proficiency in that language but no language impairment.

This task was created initially as part of the COST Action IS0804 'Language Impairment in a Multilingual Society: Linguistic Patterns and the Road to Assessment' funded by the EU RTD Framework Programme.

After the end of the funding period, the task was further developed and adapted for more languages.
