Benefits of Repeated Book Readings in Children with SLI
Rohlfing, Katharina J.; Ceurremans, Josefa; Horst, Jessica S.
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v39 n2 p367-370 Feb 2018
In this pilot study, we ask whether repeated storybook reading is also beneficial for word learning in children diagnosed with specific language impairment (SLI). We compared 3-year-old German learning children diagnosed with SLI to typically developing children matched on age and socioeconomic status (SES). One week later, children with SLI retained the target words from the stories just as well as their peers, although they did perform significantly worse on immediate recall.
