Facilitating Evidence-Based Assessment: Bringing the C-BiLLT to Canada

Traditional language comprehension assessments may not accurately measure the abilities of children with limited functional speech and motor skills. A new accessible tool, the Computer-Based Instrument for Low-motor Language Testing (C-BiLLT), was designed specifically for this population and does not require verbal or fine motor responses. Our team engaged clinicians and caregivers with vocational and lived experience in surveys and focus groups to understand the necessary conditions for implementing the validated Canadian English C-BiLLT (C-BiLLT-CAN) into practice. Demonstration videos and testimonials will be shared, key implementation barriers to address will be discussed, and attendees are welcome to share their perspectives!
