Language Processing Deficits in Learning Disabled Children and Adolescents.
Semel, Eleanor M.; Wiig, Elisabeth H.
The authors summarize results of their own and others' research of auditory language processing deficits associated with learning disabilities in children and adolescents. Among findings reported are that learning disabled children exhibit delays in the acquisition of morphological and syntactic rules, delays in logical growth, short-term memory deficits for verbal materials, and heavy dependence upon semantic aspects in language processing.
