Production Deficiencies in Elicited Language but Not in the Spontaneous Verbalizations of Hyperactive Children.
Zentall, Sydney S.
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v16 n6 p657-73 Dec 1988
Twenty-two hyperactive children were more spontaneously talkative than controls during transitions and nonverbal tasks (nonelicited conditions), but less talkative when asked to tell stories (elicited conditions). Findings suggest that minimal stimulus input precipitate excessive verbal activity from hyperactive children, while stories requiring organization and planning produce production deficiencies. (JW)
