Specific language impairment is sometimes thought to be associated with concurrent difficulties in the area of social and behavioral development (N. Botting and G. Conti-Ramsden, 2000; D. P. CantwellExpand
CMIP and ATP2C2 Modulate Phonological Short-Term Memory in Language Impairment
This work implicates CMIP and ATP2C2 in the etiology of SLI and provides molecular evidence for the importance of phonological short-term memory in language acquisition and supports the hypothesis that some causes of language impairment are distinct from factors that influence normal language variation. Expand
Working, declarative and procedural memory in specific language impairment
The evidence largely supports the predictions of the Procedural Deficit Hypothesis, and works to replicate and extend previous studies of working, declarative and procedural memory in SLI. Expand
Language, social behavior, and the quality of friendships in adolescents with and without a history of specific language impairment.
Comparisons of friendship quality in 16-year-old adolescents with and without specific language impairment tested the extent it is predicted by individual differences in social behaviors and language ability, finding language measures were associated with friendship quality. Expand
