Objective: In order to evaluate the communication attitude of preschool children, we need a standard and reliable instrument appropriate to the goals. One of the most reliable tools for measuring communicative attitude of children is the KiddyCAT test. The purpose of the present study was to translate this test into Persian and investigation of its validity and reliability.

Methods: The study was conducted on 30 stuttering children between the ages of 3-6 years. After the translation and equivalence of the test into the Persian language, content and face validity of the test were determined by experts. Also, in order to investigate the test reliability, Cronbach alpha coefficient was used.

Results: Results showed that the all the questions in the test had easy translation with appropriate quality. The data analysis indicated that the Persian version of the test has an accepted validity for assessment of the communication attitude in preschool children who stutter. The Cronbach alpha coefficient for the total test was 0. 83 (P<0.001), which indicates desirable levels of internal consistency.

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the equivalent Persian version for the communication attitude test has high validity and reliability for Persian language-children.
