Background & Objectives
The purpose of this study was two-fold. First, the study examined the effects of linguistic function and social skills in children with communication disorders and the effects of their parents’ child-rearing attitudes on their behavior problems. Second, the study attempted to determine whether these effects differed as a function of the subtype of the children’s communication disorder using the SEM path model.
The study subjects were 132 boys and 69 girls, 201 children in total, with communication disorders and their parents. The children were between 4 and 7 years of age and were from the Seoul, Kyunggi, and Chun-an areas. To measure parenting ability, the Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire (PARQ) was used. The Preschool Receptive-Expressive Language Scale (PRES) was used to determine the children’s linguistic functions, and the Social Skill Rating System (SSRS) was used to assess the children’s social skills. The Parents Report Form of Korean Child Behavior Checklist (K-CBCL) was used to measure the children’s behavior problems, and the data were analyzed with a structural equation modeling analysis.
Whereas the paternal parenting attitude was shown to have direct and indirect effects on children’s behavior problems, the maternal attitude has only direct effects. Children’s linguistic functioning influences their behavior problems through their social functions. Based on these results, this study showed that there were differences in childhood linguistic function based on communication disorder type.
Discussion & Conclusion
Children with communication disorders are likely to have numerous related problems. The social skills and behavior problems of these children should be of concern and an integral program should be provided.
