Interviewer instructions
Circle '1' for 'Yes' and '2' for 'No' for all questions in this module. Insert the child's name in the question. Read out the entire question as it is written.
Due to a translation problem in the question the response codes may give an inverse impression. 

When respondents answered 'yes' they were meaning 'yes the child does NOT understand everything'. When respondents answered 'no' they were meaning 'no the child doesn't not understand everything'.
