The Language of Language Disability.
Conant, Susan
Journal of Childhood Communication Disorders, v9 n2 p133-38 Spr-Sum 1986
Language researchers should avoid using such terms as "language-defective", "linguistically deviant", "normal", or "healthy" when describing children with or without language problems, because these terms suggest that the children are nothing but their disability. The use of "children with" (or without) plus description of the condition is more appropriate. (CB)
