Comparing Language Disorders in Two Groups of Students with Severe Behavioral Disorders.
Griffith, Penny L.; Rogers-Adkinson, Diana L.
Behavioral Disorders, v22 n3 p160-66 May 1997
This study compared 41 students with severe behavioral disorders (attending either day or residential programs) on language measures. No significant differences were found between groups; both groups showed receptive and expressive language deficits. However, teachers rated students in the day program higher on conversational skills. Also, receptive language deficits correlated with interpersonal difficulties and inappropriate behavior categories. (Author/DB)
