Word learning and memory in children with developmental language disorder
MetadataShow full item record
Many children with developmental language disorder experience deficits in memory and word learning. However, the nature of these difficulties was not well known. As such, the working, declarative, and procedural memory skills of children with DLD and typical language were explored in this PhD. Additionally, word learning skills, and how they relate to memory abilities, were investigated. The clinical application of word learning evaluation was also examined, and implications for theory and practice were described.
