Use the CCC-2 to screen for children who are likely to have language impairment, identify pragmatic impairment in children with communication problems, and assist in identifying children who may merit from further assessment for an autism spectrum disorder.

The CCC-2 is the latest version of a checklist that has been in development for 10 years. The 70 item questionnaire completed by a caregiver screens for communication problems in children aged 4 to 16 years.

Australian check normed

The assessment was check normed on 111 children from Western Australia across three age bands: 6 years, 9 years, 12 years.

Standard scores and percentiles are provided for speech, syntax, semantics, coherence, inappropriate initiation, stereotyped language, use of context, nonverbal communication, social relations, and interests.

Two composites are derived

  • General Communication Composite (GCC) identifies children likely to have clinically significant communication problems

  • Social Interaction Deviance Composite (SIDC) assists in identifying children with a communicative profile characteristic of autism
