Specific Language Impairment as a Clinical Category.
Leonard, Laurence B.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v22 n2 p66-68 Apr 1991
This article questions the idea that children diagnosed as "specifically language-impaired" suffer from a defect in a mechanism involved in language learning. An alternative view is offered, that many of these children are limited in language ability just as others are limited in musical, spatial, or kinesthetic abilities. Assessment and intervention implications are drawn. (Author/DB)
