Short-Term Memory May Yet Be Deficient in Children with Language Impairments: A Comment on van der Lely & Howard (1993).
Gathercole, Susan E.; Baddeley, Alan D.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n2 p463-66 Apr 1995
This letter points out flaws in van der Lely and Howard's argument that children with specific language impairments have no deficits in verbal short-term memory. The original methodology is faulted for providing uninterpretable assessment of verbal short-term functions and for failure to follow memory techniques from previous studies. Sample selection procedures are also discussed. (PB)
