Abstract

Research has found that boys are more likely to have language impairments than girls. In fact, the ratio for language impairments comparing boys to girls is 3:1 (Hulit, Fahey, & Howard, 2015, p. 255). This means that for every girl that has a language impairment, there are three boys who have a language impairment. Therefore, it would be reasonable to conclude that gender differences can affect language. This poster session explores the topic of gender differences in early language development. More specifically, this poster session analyzes the neurological differences found between boys and girls in their early language development. Additionally, gender differences found in form, content, and use in the early language development of boys and girls will be analyzed.
