Accommodating Cultural Differences in Narrative Style: A Multicultural Perspective.
Gutierrez-Clellen, Vera F.; And Others
Topics in Language Disorders, v15 n4 p54-67 Aug 1995
Narratives of children from different Spanish-speaking backgrounds illustrate that children's atypical narrative performance may reflect individual or cultural differences. It is suggested that static assessments may not differentiate narrative differences from disorders. A dynamic assessment model to predict the child's true language learning potential is presented.
