Sommers, Ronald K.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n2 p317-24 Apr 1991
The study evaluated prediction of language quality using 3 approaches (neurodevelopmental, cognitive, and combination) with 37 developmentally delayed children (ages 5-9). Results indicated that these children had language and speech delays that showed substantial relationships to their verbal cognitive abilities and fine motor skills, in addition to their chronological ages.
