Research Topic: "Speech and Language Goal Attack Strategies Follow-Up Study"
Abstract: The purpose of the Speech and Language Goal Attack Strategies Follow-Up Study is to perform follow-up assessment of speech, language, and literacy skills in children who participated in an early intervention study as preschoolers with speech and language delays. This will allow determination of present levels of performance, as well as preschool levels of performance that predict later language and literacy performance. With respect to clinical usefulness, this study should help to identify early predictors of later performance in children who have both speech and language learning difficulties.
