Specific Language Impairment in Children Is Not Due to a Short-Term Memory Deficit: Response to Gathercole & Baddeley.
Howard, David
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n2 p466-72 Apr 1995
This paper, responding to Gathercole and Baddeley's commentary (EC 611 105), defends van der Lely and Howard's 1993 argument that deficits in verbal short-term memory (VSTM) do not cause children's specific language impairments (SLI). It is argued that while some children with SLI may have VSTM problems, the fact that many do not eliminates VSTM as the primary cause of SLI. (PB)
