Because of its breadth, the range of structures tested by the CYCLE allows one to identify specific linguistic impairments which clinicians can then work to remediate.
The CYCLE Receptive Language Test (CYCLE-R)
The subject is asked to point to a picture corresponding to a word, phrase, or sentence
e.g. ‘The girl is pushing the boy’.
The CYCLE Elicited Expressive Language Test (CYCLE-E)
The subject is asked to complete a sentence frame.
e.g. “Here the ball is off the chair, but here the ball is…”.
