Objective: ERTL (Epreuves de Repérage de Troubles de Langage) tests have been designed as a screening test to detect rapidly language disorders. To evaluate the effectiveness of these tests, we have compared them to the form P (NEEL-P) tests for the examination of language in 6 children with a 22q11 microdeletion. Materials and method: 6 children aged from 4 years and 4 months to 5 years and 4 months, 4 boys and 2 girls have been tested. These tests have been performed in two sessions lasting between 1 and 1 1⁄2 hour. Results: They are consistent in both tests. ERTL has identified all the children with a disorder. Conclusion: These fast tests should be used more often to detect children requiring additional and more complex language and neuropsychological evaluations.
