Abstract

The phonological systems of ten preschool children with histories of middle ear involvement, Group A, and ten preschool children with no histories of middle ear involvement, Group B, were analyzed in terms of the number and frequency of simplification processes used. Results indicated that the differences were statistically significant. It was suggested that substitution patterns of Group A were often more complex and did not always follow predicted development, thus producing both delayed patterns as well as deviant patterns of speech. This has clinical implications regarding the evaluation procedures and the age at which intervention should begin.
