In addition, each child's teacher was asked to state whether, for each of four areas of language difficulty, the participant exhibited this impairment. The four areas were: articulation, phonology,(More)
Bilingual children were found to form a distinct subgroup within a large cohort of children with specific language-impairment (SLI) attending language units across England. They differed from the cohort as a whole, and from a language-matched monolingual 'control' group, on measures including language profile on entry to the unit, performance on(More)
This paper reports on the results of a large project involving 7-year-old children attending language units in England. A group of 242 children with specific language impairment (SLI) were assessed on a battery of psychometric tests. In addition, teacher interviews were carried out to ascertain teachers' opinions of the children's difficulties. Cluster(More)
ALG6-CDG (formerly named CDG-Ic) (phenotype OMIM 603147, genotype OMIM 604566), is caused by defective endoplasmic reticulum α-1,3-glucosyltransferase (E.C in the N-glycan assembly pathway (Grünewald et al. 2000).
