Developmental Sentence Scoring Applied to Language-Learning Normal and Down's Syndrome Children Matched for Mean Length of Utterance.
Rondal, J. A.
Speech samples of 14 normal 2-year-old children and 14 Down's Syndrome 5- to 12-year-old children were analyzed to investigate the structural complexity. Results from the Developmental Sentence Scoring procedure indicated that even when matched with normal children for mean length of utterance, Down's Syndrome Ss produced less syntactically sophisticated utterances. Findings had implications for the delayed or different nature of language development in retarded individuals. (CL)
