The purpose of the study was to compare performance of children without a language disorder and language-disordered children in regard to cerebral dominance. The cerebral dominance was established by counting right ear responses to dichotically presented CVC syllables. Five children without a language disorder and five children with a diagnosed language disorder were given a prior training session. Two scorers then recorded the responses to 30 dichotically presented CVC pairs during the testing session. The results showed a significant difference between the five year old language-disordered children and the five-year-old children without a language disorder in identifying dichotically presented CVC syllables. Results from the study implied that tasks of auditory perception should precede language therapy and a dichotic listening test should accompany each language evaluation.
