ATHAYDE, Marcia de Lima; CARVALHO, Queiti y MOTA, Helena Bolli. Expressive vocabulary of children with differently severe grades of phonological deviation. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2009, vol.11, suppl.2, pp.161-168. ISSN 1982-0216. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-18462009000600005.
PURPOSE: to relate task performance of expressive vocabulary with the deviation severity, the age range and the reference values of the vocabulary testing used. METHODS: the sample was made up of 17 subjects with phonological deviation, with ages ranging between 3 years 5 months and 8 years 2 months. They were divided into four groups, based on the PCC analysis and classification regarding the severity grade according to Shriberg and Kwiatkowski (1982). This result allows for classifying the deviation into: severe, moderately-severe, medium-moderated and medium. The Test for Young Children ABFW - Vocabulary was applied. An analysis took place for correlation among age, severity grade for the phonological deviation and reference results of the vocabulary testing. RESULTS: children with minor phonological deviation severity obtained better results than the others, despite the majority of these results not being significant. Younger children showed lower performance than expected. CONCLUSIONS: it is possible to think that the severity of phonological deviation may influence the performance of children in this sample in the expressive vocabulary test.
