Language ability and adult homelessness.

CONCLUSIONS &IMPLICATIONS: Adults with histories of homelessness may have worse language skills than would be expected based on their educational backgrounds and non-verbal cognitive abilities. It is possible that some of this lower language ability is pathological, in the form of either a developmental language disorder or an acquired impairment. As such, some adults who are homeless may benefit from therapy directed at clinical language disorders. PMID: 31925870 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
