Communication Disorders Quarterly, v21 n3 p154-65 Spr 2000
Language characteristics of 11 children (ages 6-8) with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and 11 typically developing children were compared for semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic language skills. Findings indicated no differences on receptive vocabulary, but children with ADHD performed worse on tests of expressive speech and language skills and also produced more inappropriate pragmatic behaviors in conversational interactions.
