Very-Low-Birthweight Children and Speech and Language Development.
Aram, Dorothy M.; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n5 p1169-79 Oct 1991
This study compared speech and language comprehension and production between 249 very low birthweight and 363 normal birthweight 8 year olds. Although low birthweight children tended to score lower, when those with major neurological abnormalities were excluded, no significant differences were found between the two groups. However, general developmental problems were more frequent in low birthweight children. (Author/DB)
