Abstract/Description: The purpose of this study was to examine the concurrent and predictive validity of the IGDI-ECI and to model communication growth on the key skill elements of the IGDI-ECI in toddlers with significant communication delays. Concurrent validity of the measure was evaluated by examining correlations at 24 and 36 months between the Total Communication Score of the IGDI-ECI and the CDI, CSBS:DP, PLS-4, and a caregiver child communication sample. The Total Communication score (a composite of gestures, vocalizations, word and multiple word use) did not significantly correlate with other measures at 24 months, but correlated with the PLS-4 at 36 months. Hierarchical linear models demonstrated growth curves for Total Communication and key skill elements that differ somewhat from other samples of children with IFSPs. HLMs also showed that the IGDI-ECI at entry predicts outcomes at 36 months on the measure itself but not on the caregiver-child communication sample. Implications and directions for future research were discussed.
