Systematic and formal instruments of language in children aged between two and five years are of predominant importance both for the investigation of possible alterations and to propose language intervention. However, currently there are few instruments available in Brazilian Portuguese for research and clinical use. The aim of this study therefore was to present a review on systematic and formal assessment instruments spoken language in preschool, used in scientific research in Brazil, built nationally or in the adaptation and validation process. Seven different instruments have been described in 22 scientific papers, which is a low number compared to other countries, and especially in comparison to non-scientific publications, not necessarily validate the efficiency of the instrument. It is suggested increased investment both in the construction of instruments as in the adaptation and validation of instruments already used in other languages. (AU)
