This paper discusses children from low income families, and language development in modern society. The paper examines the societal contention that children raised in poverty will develop inadequate language patterns as well as be candidates for special education programs when their school years commence. The research provides evidence that low income children may develop language complications because the resources for learning are not available to them.
From the Paper:"Children learn language by sound or phonology that allows them to begin to form words, sentences, and structures that serve them in communication (Wright, 2004, p. 61). Children, by nature have a strong inclination to attempt to understand what things mean in order to function within their lives, and relate to the world around them (Athey, 1983, p. 197). It has been contended, however, that children of low-income families have historically suffered from language problems that begin in early childhood, and then progress throughout life because the society in which poor children are reared is absent of the verbal intricacies that children of higher income households are accustomed to."
