Language Deficits in Children with Psychiatric Disorders: Educational Implications.
Lutz, Margaret M.
The study was designed to determine if there was an identifiable pattern of language deficit in 10 children (6 to 12 years old) undergoing treatment in a hospital inpatient psychiatry ward for behavioral and emotional problems. Ss were administered the standard hearing and speech clinic test battery which included the Binet Memory for Sentences, Token Test for Children, Expressive One Word Picture Vocabulary Test, and the Producing Words on Confrontation from the Clinical Evaluation of Language Function. Results showed difficulties in both word retrieval and short term memory for auditory information. Among the management strategies suggested were a self-contained classroom structure, and use of a speech/language pathologist. (SW)
