Understanding what the results mean

Wondering how to interpret your child's OZI-SF numbers? Input your child's age and their numbers into the tool below to get information about how your child is tracking and some useful resources for supporting your child's communicative development.

This page does not store your data, so if you would like to save your results, make sure to hit the 'print this page' button (in addition to printing, this button also lets you save the page as a PDF). You can use this tool and the OZI-SF as many times as you like while your child is within the appropriate age range (12-30 months).

If you have not yet taken the OZI-SF, you can do so here.

Disclaimer: The OZI-SF helps to record a snap shot of your child's early communication development. If you are worried about your child's communication skills before or after using the OZI-SF, please start a conversation with your Child and Family Health Nurse, doctor or contact a local speech pathologist. The OZI-SF does not give a diagnosis but aims to support the identification of early communicative skills quickly and easily.
