What's the story? Narration and comprehension in Swedish preschool children with language impairment

Reuterskiöld, Christina LU ; Sahlén, Birgitta LU and Nettelbladt, Ulrika LU (1999) In Child Language Teaching and Therapy 15(2). p.113-137
Abstract
This study investigated the possibility of identifying narrative problems at an early age (5-year-old children with language impairment). Furthermore, we explored the relationship between the comprehension of a story and the ability to structure the contents of the same story in a group of preschool children with language impairment. The results showed that the participants did not exhibit age-appropriate narrative skills. We also found that good comprehension of the narrative is a prerequisite for the ability to produce a story with a content structure in a retelling task. Methodological issues are discussed and

the clinical implications highlighted.
