The SLI children who had the most difficulty identifying brief vowels and sequencing CV and vowel stimuli were the children with normal phonology.

35 morphemes before demonstrating such play behavior. Another longitudinal study of SLI children's symbolic play was conducted by Shub, Simon, and Braccio (1982). Three SLI children (ages 2;0 to 3;0) and two NL children (ages l;0 to 1;2) served as subjects. At the onset of the study, all children possessed fewer than five "nouns" (presumably object and person names) in their expressive vocabulary. Each child was seen every 4 months until the child achieved an expressive vocabulary of 50 words and showed evidence of multiword combinations.

All three performed at the highest level of word combination comprehension assessed, but differed in the time they required to achieve this level before demonstrating symbolic play. Additional examples of discrepant levels of symbolic play and language ability can be seen in the work of Folger and Leonard (1978) and Panther and Steckol (1981).
