Boudreau, Donna PhD, CCC-SLP

Abstract

The development of narrative abilities is an important achievement, and narratives play a significant role in academic success. Children with language impairments experience significant challenges in connected discourse: difficulties that continue to characterize their linguistic abilities into adolescence. Recent research investigating narrative abilities has important theoretical and clinical implications for speech–language pathologists. This article highlights key findings in recent research addressing narrative abilities in children with and without language impairments. Implications of research findings for narrative assessment and intervention are discussed.
