Abstract

Later language development is defini ed as the increase in language complexity that occurs after the period of initial acquisition and during earlier years of schooling. In this context, this paper aims to describe how this process occurs in three different children populations: typical development (TD), specific language impairment (SLI) and intellectual disability (ID). To do this, the oral narratives of three groups of Chilean children are analyzed from a functional-discourse perspective. The sample consisted of TD=41, SLI=38 and ID=17 school-aged children, who retold a story presented in audiovisual format. The results show that the difference between the three groups is not based in the amount of interclause links used, but in the interclause relation types they prefer to build their stories into clause packages. The results indicate that the difference between the three groups is not based in the amount of interclause links used, but in the interclause relation types they prefer to build their stories into clauses packages.
