This article reports on a new research project to be conducted in Australia. The aim of the proposed project is to evaluate the utility of a new approach for assessing the communication abilities of young Aboriginal children (3-6 years) with, or at risk for developmental disability. Currently, there are no studies investigating the communication abilities among Aboriginal children who are at risk of expressive language disorders. This has prevented the development of culturally appropriate programs of support (early intervention) to improve the educational and social prospects of Indigenous Australians. Aimed at identifying a culturally suitable approach for assessing communication ability, this project has the potential to enable early intervention to be implemented to enhance children’s communication abilities.
