The Implications of Linguistic Performance for Educational Placement of Entering First Graders.
Hale, Sue T.; West, Judy
The paper reports a pilot study of 280 entering first grade students to try to identify potential handicaps, giftedness, or other special needs. During the preregistration program Ss were given measures of visual acuity, auditory acuity, and language functioning. Language test data allowed the identification of six profile types for further evaluation: speech/language impaired, learning disabled, mentally retarded, children with dialectal variations, intellectually gifted, and normal.
