Is Processing Speed Related to Severity of Language Impairment?
Lahey, Margaret; Edwards, Jan; Munson, Benjamin
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v44 n6 p1354-61 Dec 2001
Data from a study on lexical processing involving 66 children (mean age 6 years 9 months) with specific language impairments and 66 typically developing children. No significant correlations were found between response times on a series of tasks and language test scores. Results suggest that there is no linear relation between speed of processing and severity of language impairment. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
