Summary/Abstract: The Integrated Scale of Development (ISD) is a questionnaire used in 30 countries in the world in order to assess speech development in cochlearimplanted children. The aim of this study is to estimate the usefulness of this questionnaire in assessing speech development in Polish-speaking children and to describe the adaptation process and the related diffi culties. The research conducted in a group of 193 hearing children allowed the ascertainment that the ISD version adapted to the specifi city of the phonology, morphology and syntax of the tested language is a universal tool. The results can be used to study the level of language skills of normal-hearing children, hearing-impaired children – to compare them with a given language standard, and to compare the results of the therapy of hearing-impaired children to the results of research carried out in other languages. At the same time, the experience gained during the process of ISD adjustment to the Polish language can be used while adjusting this scale to other Slavic languages.
