Symbolic Play of Children with Language Impairment: A Critical Review.
Casby, Michael W.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n3 p468-79 Jun 1997
This paper reviews research on symbolic play gaps between children with and without language impairment (LI), arguing that these gaps should not be interpreted as demonstrative of marked deficits in general representational or specific symbolic play competence of children with LI. Frequent encroachment of language into testing procedures is cited as one of several common methodological flaws in such studies. (Author/PB)
