Abstract

All of the subjects were screened for normal hearing, normal intelligence for single-word receptive vocabulary, and normal oral motor abilities. The children were administered two tests of phonological abilities and spontaneous language samples were obtained. The phonological data were analyzed according to the procedures outlined by Ingram (1981), and resulted in the following measures of phonological ability: total sounds used, articulation scores, proportions of matches, acquired sounds, homonymous forms, and number and type of processes used. The statistical analysis showed no significant differences between the two groups, with the exception of number of sounds acquired. These results indicate that the children with chronic otitis media were similar in phonological development to the normally hearing children.
