The Original Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, and the Revised Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Twenty subjects ranging in age from 4 years, 3 months (4-3) to 5 years, 0 months (5-rO) participated in the study. The subjects were divided into two groups, a Normal Language Group and a Language Impaired Group. Each subject was administered each of the experimental tests to determine if a relationship existed between the scores. Significant positive relationships were found between : IA.
