Whitehurst, Grover J.; And Others
Topics in Language Disorders, v11 n4 p55-68 Aug 1991
Twenty-seven toddlers identified as showing specific expressive language delay (ELD) were studied and followed through the preschool period. Findings indicated that home-based intervention accelerated vocabulary skills, but did not decrease the likelihood of later phonological problems. ELD was also seen as a self-correcting condition.
