The Challenge of Assessing Language in Children with Hearing Loss.
Yoshinaga-Itano, Christine
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v28 n4 p362-73 Oct 1997
Challenges current practices in language evaluation for school-aged children with significant hearing loss. It argues for an interactive approach to assessment and offers specific recommendations for the interpretation of test results. Application of current connectionist and competition theories of language acquisition suggests the concept of differential weighting of aspects of language at various stages of development.
