    Chinese communicative development inventories: user's guide and manual
    (Peking University Medical Press, 2008) Tardif, Twila; Fletcher, Paul; Research Grants Council, University Grants Committee; Science Foundation Ireland
    This Guide for users of the Cantonese and Putonghua (Mandarin) CDIs contains: an account of the standardisation projects undertaken in Hong Kong and Beijing for these parent report instruments; statistical information necessary to interpret the results of applying the CDIs; and, at the end of the book, all the parent report forms, for both languages, for short and long forms of the instruments. (For further statistical information on the long forms, visit wordbank.stanford.edu). The Chinese CDIs are modelled on the original MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories* but with appropriate adaptation for the cultural and linguistic characteristics of Putonghua and Cantonese. In common with the originals, they are designed to cover the age range from 8 – 30 months.
