Recall Harder For Kids With Language Impairments

I've always been fascinated with how children learn to speak. If you've ever tried to learn a foreign language as a teenager or adult, you start to understand what a complicated process it is. Kids with language delay or impairment may have a tougher time not only with speaking but also with recall. As mentioned in the article below, talking with kids and explaining day to day situations can help. Read more:

Language impaired kids can't recall story (www.sciencedaily.com)

From the article:

A University of Alberta researcher found that children with language impairments fare very poorly when trying to recall story details.

Denyse Hayward read a script-based story -- about two children who go to a restaurant with their mother -- to 44 8-year-old children with and without language impairments. Once the story was finished, the children were asked to tell the story back to the examiner.

The study, published in the American Journal of Speech Language Pathology, found that the children with language impairments often were only able to retell one key piece of information related to the story. Researchers called that a surprising result, since research on children without language impairments shows children as young as 3 can comprehend and retell basic scripts -- how people store information in their brain.

"This research indicates that we need to talk more with our children about what we are doing in daily situations because children with language impairments often need more experiences before they will understand and remember scripts," Hayward said in a statement.

Having Babies Over 40 From AARP


Okay, I reluctantly admit: I got my AARP card! You know there must be many others out there like me who are having children later in life if AARP is addressing it. Read more:

Giving birth after 40: Ageless motherhood: Births to women over age 40 are soaring, and so is the birth rate (aarp.org)

From the article:

In 1995 and 2006, for example, the number of babies born to women 40 to 44 grew from 67,250 to 105,476. And the number of babies born to women older than that increased from 2,727 to 6,958, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control's National Vital Statistics System.

The birth rate of the women 40 to 44 grew by 45 percent in that time, and the birth rate for the oldest group doubled.

More babies are born to women having their first child over age
40 as well. The number of these births increased from 20,096 in 2000 to 24,284 in 2006.
