ABSTRACT
Analyzes the proposition that children with specific language impairment (SLI) in the United States show a generalized slowing of response time (RT) across tasks compared to chronological-age peers. Examination of theoretical models using regression analyses; Investigation of the differences in generalized slowing for expressive and mixed SLI subgroups; How well the notion of generalized slowing held for the RT of individual SLI children.

    Response times on test items are easily collected in modern computerized testing. When collecting both (binary) responses and (continuous) response times on test items, it is possible to measure the accuracy and speed of test takers. To study the relationships between these two constructs, the...
