Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

Bilingual Language Proficiency Questionnaire

Mattes, L. J., & Santiago, G. (English/Spanish edition) (1985); Mattes, L. J., & Nguyen, L. (English/Vietnamese edition)( 1996). Bilingual Language Proficiency Questionnaire. Oceanside, CA: Academic Communication Associates.

A parent interview communication profile designed for use in the speech and language assessment of children (ages 0 - 8 years) who speak the Spanish or Vietnamese language. Articulation, language, voice, fluency, and the pragmatic aspects of communication are examined. Items are listed in both the English and Spanish or English and Vietnamese languages, which can be helpful in determining the language that is most appropriate for the child's instructional program.

Speech-language pathologists, bilingual education teachers, and other education professionals who are fluent speakers of the Spanish or Vietnamese language will find this instrument useful in eliciting information from the adult who is most familiar with the child's language development. It can be used to obtain information about the child's effectiveness in using language to describe events, express feelings, request information, and various other speaking purposes; and determine appropriate educational placements for those children. To be used in conjunction with data obtained from formal tests, tape-recorded communication samples, observations in the classroom, and various other measures to perform a comprehensive analysis.
