Prematurity and Language Developmental Risk: Too Young or Too Small?
Gallagher, Tanya M.; Watkin, Kenneth L.
Topics in Language Disorders, v18 n3 p15-25 May 1998
Reviews research on frequently occurring perinatal risk factors, especially the relationship between small-for-gestational age infants and later language and language-related skills. It finds that being too young, too small, or both represent risk factors for language development that increase in that order and are sufficient to warrant language monitoring. (Author/DB)
