Evans, Julia L.; Alibali, Martha W.; McNeil, Nicole M.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v16 n2-3 p309-31 Apr-Jun 2001
Explores the extent to which children with specific language impairment (SLI) with severe phonological working memory deficits express knowledge uniquely in gesture as compared to speech. Using a paradigm in which gesture-speech relationships have been studied extensively, children with SLI and conversation judgment-matched, typically developing controls were asked to solve and explain a set of Piagetan conservation tasks.
