Does anyone have a list of appropriate questions specific to parents of children with EAL?

I give parents (of all children) forms to complete prior to their child starting nursery - 'All about me' and 'All about my child'. I am revamping them for the new term and would like to add something specific to children with EAL. Does anyone do anything similar and, if so, what questions do you ask?

Many thanks!

Although i do ask questions i dont change the paperwork for them as i think it should cover all bases for all people. I do ask which of the things they can do in their home language and which in English and make a note of this. I tend to assess in home language for the basis of prime areas and english for specific areas.We also have translation lists (i also use babel to learn a few myself) We also use makaton to help and other children to translate if we get really stuck!!! (or staff if we know the langage) plus visual clues to back up.
