Auditory Perceptual Ability Related to Language Acquisition in Mentally-Retarded Children. Interim Report.
Graham, James T.; Graham, Louella W.
As part of a long range study of language behavior, six teenage mentally retarded males (IQ 37 to 64) were interviewed, and tapes were made to record language samples. Linguistic competence was found to be adequate while language performance was deficient. The sentence repetition test was found to be a useful predictor of problem areas for high corpus-error informants but not for those making few corpus errors. (Author/RJ)
