Creating Language Impairments in Typically Achieving Children: The Pitfalls of "Normal" Normative Sampling.
McFadden, Teresa Ukrainetz
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v27 n1 p3-9 Jan 1996
This article describes errors resulting from use of standardized language tests using a "normal" sample as the normative comparison group. Resulting errors include, among others, identifying normal children as language impaired, providing misleading profiles of verbal and nonverbal performance, and inability to determine impairment severity. Recommendations are offered to alleviate this problem. (DB)
