Taxonomic Clustering and Frequency Associations as Features of Semantic Memory Development in Children with Learning Disabilities.
Lee, Carolyn P.; Obrzut, John E.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v27 n7 p454-62 Aug-Sep 1994
This study investigated taxonomic clustering and use of frequency associations as features in the semantic memory of children (n=30 in grades two and six) with learning disabilities (LD). Results suggested that, when individual child-generated word lists (i.e., meaningful) are used, children with LD may not be impaired in their ability to utilize semantic structure to facilitate learning.
