L’évaluation du langage oral des enfants bilingues : quand elle est possible uniquement en français

Abstract : Speech-language pathologists are often unable to assess bilingual children in both languages. The objective of this study was to see if it is possible to distinguish bilingual children with developmental oral language disorder (Bi-DLD) from typically developing bilingual children (Bi-DT) when assessment is possible only in French. For this purpose, 30 bilingual children aged 6 to 11 years with French as their common language were divided into two groups: 14 bilingual children with a diagnosis of developmental oral language disorder and 16 bilingual children without a disorder. Their performance was evaluated in three linguistic domains, phonology, lexicon and morphosyntax, using a quasi-universal test and tests from the EVALEO 6-15 which is a battery initially designed to evaluate the language of monolingual children. Results showed that typically developing bilinguals scored significantly higher than bilinguals with developmental oral language disorder on all tests. However, it was found that weighting the results according to the children's language exposure is necessary to properly interpret their results. For example, it is possible to distinguish bilingual children with developmental oral language disorders from those without developmental oral language disorders using a quasi-universal test and a conventional battery, the EVALEO, when the assessment is possible only in French if weighting of results is performed.
