A group of 20 children with cerebral Palsy, and complex communication needs (NSCP) (GMFCS IV and V) and a group of 42 children with no disability participated in this exploratory study to (1) devise a computer-based instrument (C-BiLT) that measures the comprehension of spoken language in young children (18 - 75 months) with NSCP, and to (2) investigate whether this instrument can be an alternative for standard language assessments such as the Reynell Development Language Scale (RLDS). The C-BiLT minimizes the demands in movement enabling all children with GMFCS V to perform better. Preliminary results are promising and form a sound basis for further development.
