Abstract

The speech production skills of 38 school-aged siblings and 94 parents of children with phonology disorders were assessed by administering tasks involving the repetition of multisyllabic real and nonsense words, and "difficult-to-articulate" phrases and sentences. Results demonstrated that speech production, as measured by these tasks, continues to improve into adulthood. Furthermore, family members who reported histories of childhood speech and language problems performed more poorly on these challenging articulatory tasks than did individuals without such a history. These tasks were positively correlated with reading, spelling, and language achievement measures, thus suggesting a relationship between spoken and written language.
