This paper addresses the principles used in efficient language intervention. These principles will be examined in the light of recent data in typical and atypical language development. Particular attention will be given to repetition and variability, in link with recent theoretical framework about language development. [less ▲]

The usage-based theory considers that the morphosyntactic productions of children with SLI are particularly dependent on input frequency. When producing complex syntax, the language of these children is, therefore, predicted to have a lower variability and to contain fewer infrequent morphosyntactic markers than that of younger children matched on morphosyntactic abilities. Using a spontaneous language task, the current study compared the complexity of the morphological and structural productions of 20 children with SLI and 20 language-matched peers (matched on both morphosyntactic comprehension and mean length of utterance). As expected, results showed that although basic structures were produced in the same way in both groups, several complex forms (i.e. tenses such as Imperfect, Future or Conditional and Conjunctions) were less frequent in the productions of children with SLI. Finally, we attempted to highlight complex linguistic forms that could be good clinical markers for these children. [less ▲]

Purpose: This study assesses the hypothesis of a limitation in attentional allocation capacity as underlying poor sentence comprehension in children with SLI. Method: Fifteen children with SLI, 15 age-matched controls, and 15 grammar-matched controls. Sixty sentences were presented in isolation, and 60 sentences were presented with a concurrent non-linguistic target-detection task. If poor attentional allocation capacity is a core deficit in SLI, they should be impaired to a greater extent in the dual task condition relative to the grammatical-age controls. On the contrary, a comparable performance decrement under the dual-task condition in children with SLI and younger language controls would attest of a limitation in attentional allocation capacity in children with SLI that is not disproportionate to their language level. Results: Sentence comprehension was affected by the dual-task condition to a greater extent in children with SLI relative to age-controls, but not relative to grammatical-controls. Conclusions: Our study does not support limitations in attentional allocation capacity as representing a core deficit in SLI. Rather, our data show that these children show attentional allocation capacity comparable to that of younger children having similar language level, suggesting that SLI is characterized by a slowed development of both attentional and language domains.

La dysphasie, définie comme un trouble spécifique du développement du langage, demeure encore très mal comprise aujourd'hui et continue d‟être au coeur de la réflexion de nombreuses études. Plusieurs hypothèses ont tenté d‟expliquer les difficultés des enfants atteints de ce trouble. Celle de la limitation des capacités de traitement, qui suggère un déficit de la vitesse de traitement ou de la mémoire de travail comme origine des troubles langagiers, en est un exemple intéressant. Et si les troubles morphosyntaxiques de ces enfants pouvaient être expliqués en termes de limitation des capacités de traitement ? Certains auteurs vont dans ce sens et c‟est ce que nous avons voulu évaluer dans notre étude. Pour cela, une tâche de compréhension morphosyntaxique a été créée. Dans ces phrases, trois facteurs influençant les ressources de traitement utilisées ont été manipulés : la fréquence lexicale des mots utilisés, la longueur des phrases et la réalisation d'une tâche interférente. Notre hypothèse suppose une dégradation plus importante des performances des enfants dysphasiques par rapport à celles des enfants contrôles suite à l'augmentation des demandes en ressources de traitement. Or, si les résultats obtenus nous permettent d'attester de la standardisation de notre tâche ; nous ne pouvons corroborer l'hypothèse de la limitation des capacités de traitement. En effet, des différences entre les groupes sont observées mais la chute de la performance des enfants dysphasiques escomptée n'est pas mise en évidence. Et quand nous nous attachons à comprendre les différences entre les trois groupes d'enfants, c'est une explication en termes de niveau langagier qui serait privilégiée. [less ▲]
