Language and Executive Functioning in School-Age Children

Date Range



The current investigation evaluated the relationships among executive functioning and language ability using the latent variable model of executive functioning (Miyake et al., 2000) as a framework. This model suggests that shifting, updating working memory, and inhibition represent separate, yet related, constructs. Individuals with decreased language ability have been found to display deficits in these areas, yet most investigations have only assessed as single construct or used general measures which do not clarify which aspects of executive functioning are related to language ability.
