A recent research article by Gillam, Peña, Bedore, Bohman and Mendez-Perez (2013) examined the accuracy of the current EpiSLI testing model for bilingual children with specific language impairment (SLI). Additionally, it explored whether the current EpiSLI model could be modified to give better results in the diagnosis of SLI in bilingual children. Gillam et al. (2013) recruited and screened 1,192 kindergarteners identified as English Language Learners (ELLs), using a bilingual screener to evaluate each child's grasp of both English and Spanish. A follow up study was conducted when the children reached first grade.
