Development of Differentiation between Writing and Drawing Systems.
Adi-Japha, Esther; Freeman, Norman H.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n1 p101-14 Jan 2001
Examined emergence of a writing system in 4- to 12- year-olds. Found transition occurring around age 6 in which production was more fluent for writing than drawing and activation of one system interfered with the other. Modeling consolidation of both phenomena generated testable parameters for development, involving increasing specialization and waning of the need for suppressing the two systems' interference.
