The field of language development and its disorders is a widely researched area in the field of speech-language pathology. However, language development in the Indian population is vaguely studied, probably because of the diversity of languages and cultures in this country. This has time and again resulted in difficulties in estimating the language levels of children with language impairments, consequently becoming challenging to prepare customized interventional plans. The lack of standardized language assessment tools has always been a concern in clinical practice. This lacuna in establishing accurate language levels has been observed in the adolescent population as well, which is also been universally reported. In order to overcome this challenge, research is ongoing in understanding and developing language and culture-specific assessment tools/tasks for children and adolescents in India. This will help in the better management of individuals with language impairments.
