When children have significant difficulties learning their native language and no clear reason can be identified, such as a hearing impairment or limited cognitive abilities, they are often diagnosed with the disorder Specific Language Impairment (SLI). Earlier research suggests that children with SLI not only have problems with the acquisition of grammatical knowledge, but also have problems with the implementation of knowledge once it has been acquired. Iris Duinmeijer tests under what conditions individuals with SLI are impeded in the implementation of grammatical knowledge, and secondly whether variability in performance is related to processing abilities.
