This PDF version of the CDI: Words and Gestures Form taps into parents' day-to-day knowledge about their young child's language and communication skills. The convenient form is fillable and easy to complete, and once a program downloads it, they can use it as many times as needed.

The Words and Gestures Form is for use with children ages 8–18 months. The first part of the form prompts parents to document the child's understanding of hundreds of early vocabulary items separated into semantic categories such as animal names, household items, and action words. Parents mark the words understood or used, and the forms yield separate indexes of words understood and words produced. The second part of each form asks parents to record the communicative and symbolic gestures the child has tried or completed.

These forms are part of the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories (CDIs). The CDIs and their Spanish adaptation, the Inventarios, are standardized, parent-completed report forms that track young children's language and communication skills. Top language researchers developed the report forms, designing them to focus on current behaviors and salient emergent behaviors that parents can recognize and track.
