ABSTRACT
Compares the hemispheric dominance for language of language-disordered, articulation-disordered and normal children using dichotic listening tests. Left cerebral hemisphere dominance for the normal and articulation-disordered groups; Unlateralized cerebral dominance for language in language disorders; Comparison of auditory stimuli processing in the left hemisphere among the three groups.

    The human brain is separated into two distinct cerebral hemispheres (left and right brain) by a longitudinal fissure (Hill, 2001). The right brain is concerned with mathematical skills, inductive and deductive reasoning, written language and spoken language (Falk, 2005). In contrast, the left...

However, very little is known about how language and melody...
