ABOUT THIS BOOK
Certain Language Skills in Children was first published in 1957. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.No. 26 in the Institute of Child Welfare Monograph SeriesThe data presented in this monograph have practical application for child psychologists, pediatricians, school nurses, and others dealing with young children in a clinical or remedial situation. The work provides norms on the development of articulation of speech sounds, sound discrimination, sentence structure, and vocabulary, as well as the interrelations of these language skills in children from ages three to eight. Since verbal expression is frequently the medium through which social interaction, cognition, and other behavior aspects are studied, knowledge of the probable verbal performance of children can often be vital in determining a design for an experimental study.
