Abstract

The performance of children with and without language disorders on eleven cognitive tasks was examined. Twenty children with language disorders and twenty children matched for chronological age and gender participated in this study. The tasks were divided into three categories according to the type of problem solving skills required: inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, and perceptual. The children without language disorders performed significantly better than the children with language disorders on each of the individual tasks. The group differences were greatest on the inductive tasks, followed by the deductive tasks, and smallest on the perceptual tasks.
