Early identification is the first step to helping young children with language delays improve their skills—proficiencies that are so important to later reading success. But how do you find the children who might need help? It's simple with the Quick Interactive Language Screener™ (QUILS™), a one-of-a-kind tool that helps you evaluate whether children are making language progress appropriate for their age group.

Administered during the regular day, typically one child at a time in a quiet area of the classroom, the QUILS is a helpful addition to kindergarten entry assessments (KEAs) and an ideal tool for use in individual classrooms or centers. The format ensures standardized delivery for each child, while automatically generated scores save time for busy teachers—providing cut scores by age level, standard scores, percentile ranks, and reports to share with colleagues and families. And this game-like interactive measure is so much fun, children might even ask if they can do it again!

QUILS screens 3 key areas of language development:
  • Vocabulary: This area looks at word knowledge. Do children know the words they hear on the QUILS?
  • Syntax: This area looks at how words go together in sentences. For example, how do children understand questions that begin with where, when, and how?
  • Process: This area looks at skill in learning new words and grammar structures. How good are children at learning language items when they are new?

Review by: Brenda Giourmetakis, Supervisor of Inclusive Learning at Edmonton Public Schools
Wow! What an excellent resource for general education teachers. This book is a comprehensive guide to what inclusion is and how to insure you can create an inclusive classroom for all students. I will be sure to share this book with teachers looking for new ideas to include their students.
Review by: Lesley Quinn, Communicare, LLC
“Groundbreaking...a dynamic measure that can show relationships and sequences over time in a way static pictures cannot. And the illustrations are great (most inclusive and racially diverse I've seen).”
Review by: Melissa Scopio, Clinical Supervisor, University of Delaware Speech Language Hearing Clinic
"[QUILS] is like no other screening for the early childhood population. The results provide information on vocabulary, syntax, and processing and provide exact areas for improvement."
Review by: Caroline Louchart, Speech/Language Pathologist, Shiawassee Regional Educational Service District
"A quick and easy way to look at a child's understanding of many common language concepts."
Review by: Elizabeth Carlson, Speech Language Pathologist
"I love the parent reports, comparative reports, and the touch screen idea for functional use."
Review by: Elizabeth Lucas, Speech Language Pathologist, ASHA Board Certified - Child Language, Appoquinimink School District
"The key benefit of the QUILS is that it provides a screening opportunity that includes vocabulary, sentence structure, and processing. Early intervention is critical to academic success as well as literacy development. Many children are overlooked for speech referrals because they have strong syntax or vocabulary. The importance of language processing is not overlooked in this screening."
Review by: Sara Lewandowski, School Psychologist and MTSS Coach/Systems Mentor
"Allows our professionals to quickly, efficiently, and consistently identify the language needs of our preschool population and connect educators and families to resources."
Review by: Erica Tipton, Executive Director, Child Development Center
"Intervention activities help educators address areas of concern, while reports provide parents with a concrete understanding of where their child falls within the range of typical development."
