The Relationship between Speech/Language and Social Skills in Preschool Children with Developmental Delays.
Moore, Jennifer
This study compared language and social skills development in 32 developmentally delayed preschool children classified as having speech/language impairments. Social skills were rated by teachers on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales. Language scores were from the Preschool Language Scale administered by speech/language therapists. Statistical analysis was used to determine if there was a significant positive relationship between a child's chronological age, the language score age equivalent, and the social skills age equivalent. Analysis did not find a significant relationship between the children's social skills and their language ability. A possible reason for this finding was the restricted range of functioning in the participating children. (Contains 45 references.) (DB)
