Is (name)'s speech in any way different from normal (not clear enough to be understood by people other than the immediate family)?
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.
