Lee, Rene Friemoth; Kamhi, Alan G.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v23 n8 p476-82 Oct 1990
Twelve learning-disabled (LD) children (ages 9-11) with language impairments performed more poorly on 3 verbal metaphor tasks and a visual metaphor task than 12 LD children without language impairments, who, in turn, performed more poorly than 12 nondisabled children on all but the visual task. Context variations had no effect on performance. (Author/JDD)
