Vowel Perception in Children with and without Language Impairment.
Stark, Rachel E.; Heinz, John M.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v39 n4 p860-69 Aug 1996
Twenty-four children (ages 6-10) with language impairment (LI) and 22 without participated in a study of discrimination, identification, and serial ordering of highly dissimilar and similar vowels. Children with LI were less accurate in several tasks and were found to experience auditory perception deficits which led to less robust central representation for steady-state vowels. (Author/PB)
