First Words Checklist – Language Learning Assessment for Toddlers and Pre-KFirst Words Checklist

By Cognitive ToyBox, Inc.


First Words Checklist is an informal assessment for toddlers with no advertising. The app assesses your child’s knowledge of over 100+ common words in important categories like food, clothing, and household items. Parents can use the assessment results to pinpoint areas of strength and weakness in a child’s vocabulary.

Developed by cognitive scientists, the app is ideal for parents, speech therapists, and homeschoolers who want to better understand a young child’s speech and language development. The digital assessment is specially designed for 2-3 year olds. Compared to a traditional paper assessment, it is both more engaging for a child and less onerous to administer for a parent.

Try it for free! The first two categories are free for everyone.
