Education Specialist (EdS)
In recent years, theorists have noted that developmental and individual differences may exist in the ability to suppress information that is irrelevant to a given task (e.g.,, Bjorklund & Harnishfeger, 1990; Dempster, 1992; Gernsbacher, 1988; Hasher & Zacks, 1988). The present study examined whether language/learning disabled (L/LD) children have greater difficulty than nondisabled (NLD) children suppressing irrelevant information during a sentence memory task.
