Perception of Self-Competence in Relation to Language Competence among Preschoolers.
Jambunathan, Saigeetha; Norris, Janet A.
Child Study Journal, v30 n2 p91-101 2000
Examined the relation between language competence and self-competence among 3-4 year olds, using the Preschool Language Assessment Inventory. Found that children's perception of self-competence is influenced by their language competence. The finding that linguistically complex items may not be completely understood by children with low-average language abilities also suggests the test may be inappropriate for children with language delays.
