Le frasi derivate da movimento nei bambini con impianto cocleare
Dalla valutazione al training linguistico
This book faces two issues: the assessment of movement-derived structures in children with cochlear implants, and the linguistic training based on the explicit teaching of syntactic rules. Participants were tested on the production, comprehension, and repetition of sentences derived by A’ movement. The performance of the children with cochlear implants was compared with the performance of a group of children with normal hearing. Results showed a better performance of hearing children than deaf children, and the typical subject-object asymmetry common to both groups. As for the training part, three case studies are presented on the adaptation into Italian of the linguistic training of relative clauses. The linguistic training follows the protocols developed for adults with aphasia and children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). Results showed an improvement in both trained and untrained structures, and in the participants’ narrative skills.
