This work was supported by a City University London Research Fellowship awarded to the first author and a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship awarded to the second author. The authors would like to thank the team of teachers/speech language therapists who helped developing the target items, Neil Fox for modeling all target and distractor signs, Kate Rowley for signing the British Sign Language instructions, and Breish Rowe for assisting with data coding. Furthermore, we would like to thank Gary Morgan and Brenda Schick for their comments on the test format. We are very much indebted to the three anonymous reviewers and the associate editor of this journal, Marianne Gullberg, for their insightful comments on earlier versions of this work as well as the main editor, Lourdes Ortega, for her final suggestions. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to all the children and teachers who took part in and supported this research study.
