Subjects are recruited during pregnancy into the MoBa study. As part of the Autism Birth Cohort study, a sub-study in MoBa, parents complete a mailed questionnaire that screen for social and communication disorders at 36 months. Children who screen positive are invited for a full clinical assessment. In addition a control group of randomly drawn children from all participants is invited for assessment. Our study includes 30 children diagnosed with a developmental language disorder as well as 20 children from a control group. In order to differentiate the language abilities within the groups, a language transcription of a DVD-recorded play situation with the mother is conducted. This identifies mean length of utterance, %intelligibility and other measures. The ADHD-symptoms are assessed using the diagnostic interview Preschool Age Psychiatric Assessment (PAPA).
