Just Pretend: Participation in Symbolic Talk by Children with Histories of Early Corrective Heart Surgery.
Ovadia, Rebecca; Hemphill, Lowry; Winner, Kendra; Bellinger, David
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n3 p321-40 Sep 2000
Examined parent-child play in 30 4-year-old children with early corrective heart surgery (ECHS) and 30 typically-developing children. Children were compared on basic language measures and proportions of symbolic and nonsymbolic talk. Children with ECHS focused on concrete "here and now" talk and produced less symbolic talk; only one third of the children with ECHS were able to produce story episodes. (Author/VWL)
