Fazio, Barbara B.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n2 p358-68 Apr 1994
Twenty preschool children with specific language impairment (SLI) were compared to matched peers on counting abilities. SLI children demonstrated knowledge of rules associated with counting but exhibited marked difficulty in counting objects. They showed difficulty with rote counting, displayed a limited repertoire of number terms, miscounted sets, but performed better on gestural counting tasks. (Author/JDD)
