Rhea Paul has graciously responded to our request for more information about the group of children she describes as having slow expressive language development (SELD). Specifically, in her reply she reports that at first grade, the children with SELD, as a group, performed no differently from the children without SELD (control group) on the remaining subtests of the PIAT (Mathematics, Spelling, and General Information), and on the receptive quotient of the TOLD-P. She also indicates that the groups did not differ in performing a phonological segmentation task, addressing some of our concerns about the absence of metalinguistic tasks in the first grade assessment battery.
