Title: Listening comprehension difficulties in children with co-occurring language impairment and ADHD
Author: Shaw, Whitney Nicole
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to explore whether listening comprehension difficulties are due to receptive language impairment or attention deficits in school-age children. This evidence-based practice brief analyzes research within this population and gives suggestions on clinical implications for practicing speech-language pathologists related to intervention. Results show that listening comprehension is impaired in children whether or not they have co-occurring language impairment. However, ADHD does not further impair a child with a language disorder. Intervention for this population should focus on increasing the child’s understanding of causal connections, making inferences, and effective ways to study.
