Abstract

The efficacy of direct training in analogical reasoning was examined in school-aged children with language disorders. Analogy training was divided into two phases. The first phase consisted of direct instruction in the componential processes of analogical reasoning and the second phase included bridging activities incorporated into school curriculum and life-skill situations. The performance of the trained children was compared with a control group of peers with language disorders, matched for mental age. There was a significant positive effect for training on students' performance on verbal analogy problems.
