The purpose of this study was to explore the validity and reliability of Turkish version of the Pragmatic Language Skills Inventory (TV-PLSI). Participants included 1383 individuals with normal development (5-12 years of age; 705 male and 678 female). Data were also collected from individuals diagnosed with intellectual disabilities and autism in order to examine discrimination validity of the TV-PLSI. After carrying out Turkish translation procedure, reliability and validity of TV-PLSI were explored by conducting a series of analyses. Results yielded that TV-PLSI is a reliable and valid assessment tool to be used with individuals with semantic-pragmatic disorders in Turkey.
