dc.description.abstractThis study investigated if the story retelling and comprehension task Ana Gets Lost , that is frequently used with school-aged children, has clinical utility with a preschool population. The study also assessed the task ' s concurrent and predictive validity with norm-referenced tests of language performance. A total of 92 typically-developing 4-year-old children participated. After 12 months, 57 children were available for a follow-up session. At each session, children listened twice to the story while looking at the pictures and then retold the story without the use of pictures. After the fi rst exposure the children were asked comprehension questions to assess their oral narrative comprehension. Children ' s performance was analysed on measures of comprehension, narrative quality, semantics, morphosyntax, and verbal productivity to provide a Profi le of Oral Narrative Ability (PONA). Results showed normal distribution of some of the measures and acceptable concurrent and predictive correlations with two norm-referenced measures of language ability. Although the results indicate the potential usefulness of this tool with preschool children, further research should investigate its potential as a screening measure of oral narrative performance.en_US
