MacLachlan, Barbara G.; Chapman, Robin S.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v53 n1 p2-7 Feb 1988
Communication breakdowns occurring in the speech of seven language learning-disabled children (aged 9-11) were examined in conversation and narration and compared to normal peers. Length of communication unit and rate of communication breakdowns per communication unit were greater in narration than conversation compared to controls. No differences were found in breakdown types. (Author/JDD)
