A Study of Some Speech-Language Functions of Children Affected by Early Schooling.
Hyder, Robert Guy
This study investigated the language performance of two groups of children in grades four, five, seven, and eight. One group was composed of 15 children who began first grade at less than six years, three months of age; the other group included 15 who began first grade after they were over six years, eleven months of age. Results from a series of measures of reading achievement, speech, and language production indicated that the late-entry students consistently performed more successfully than did the early-entry students. This was interpreted as indicating that the early introduction of formal language activities, out of maturational or developmental sequences, does not promote maturation. (Author/AA)
