Current diagnostics of childhood aphasia operate with only a few test instruments. In particular, there is no test that assesses communicative-pragmatic performance. The Szenario-Kids is a diagnostic instrument under development for the evaluation of multimodal communication skills of 8- to 15-year-old children suffering from aphasia. 2 parallelized test versions A and B were designed and applied to 22 healthy children. On the basis of these results, a final version of the Szenario-Kids was developed and tested in 4 age-matched children with aphasia. The data evaluation for healthy children yielded a satisfactory retest-reliability for each test version. However, the 2 versions were not sufficiently parallelized as revealed by significant differences in mean value at each test time. Age could not be identified as a factor that influences performance in children. As verbal communication is not mandatory when applying Szenario-Kids, the test is well suited for children with severe aphasia, while there were ceiling effects in children with mild impairments. Szenario-Kids will be further modified in order to be suitable for testing children with milder impairments. Furthermore, the parallelization of the 2 test versions will be improved.
