WinG is a standardised assessment for children aged 19-36 months which assesses the knowledge of nouns, verbs and a range of describing words. The
test is made up of four subtests to evaluate children’s semantic knowledge: noun comprehension, predicate comprehension (‘predicate’ includes verbs,
adjectives and prepositions), noun production and predicate production.
Please note: WinG is a closed test, which means it can only be delivered by Speech and Langauge Therapists, Educational Psychologists and Early Years educators

So great to have a standardised and flexible assessment to use with children under 39months or those at an early developmental level. Beautiful quality modern images and an easy to follow administration manual as well as a choice of paper and interactive recording forms. I think this will become a well-used resource in my tool kit!

I think it's a great assessment tool for pre schoolers as it can help identify specific gaps in vocab to support SMART target setting.

The WinG test is a really useful new resource for both clinicians and researchers. It allows for the assessment of both comprehension and production of vocabulary items in children from 19 to 36 months of age – a period that is particularly important for language development. There is no existing test that does the same for the whole of this period, and no test using direct measures (rather than parental report). Extensive reliability and external validity checks give positive results.
