Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n2 p340-50 Apr 2000
Predictors of language production skills were evaluated in 48 children and adolescents with Down syndrome and compared to 48 children matched for nonverbal mental age and mother's years of education. Comparison of two models found the model that incorporated comprehension performance (as well group membership, chronological age, cognition, socioeconomic status, and hearing status) better predicted language performance.
