Influence of schooling on language abilities of adults without linguistic disorders

Abstract: METHODS: Eighty volunteers were selected. Schooling was stratified into three bands: A (1-4 years), B (5-8 years) and C (nine years and over). The age range was from 17 to 80 years. All the subjects underwent the Montreal Toulouse (Modified MT Beta-86) language assessment protocol.RESULTS: Statistically significant differences were found in relation to schooling levels, in the tasks of oral comprehension, reading, graphical comprehension, naming, lexical availability, dictation, graphical naming of actions and… Show more

“…Although not statistically significant, counting from 1 to 20 and comprehension tasks also were more impaired in patients with left hemisphere injuries. Difficulties for counting were probably due to language impairment and not to the low educational levels of our patients 17 , since the left hemisphere group had a lower proportion of subjects with four years or less of elementary schooling, besides having higher educational levels. Studies with larger samples might likely be able to differentiate brain injury sides from the analysis of the other items.…”

“…Table 2 compares the performance of the two groups on various subtests. Although the groups differed in age, we do not consider that this difference affected the results because there were no elderly subjects in our sample, and there is no evidence of cognitive changes at these ages 19 .…”

“…In addition to its cultural and linguistic patterns from other country, the responses by patients are also evaluated according to normality standards established by international studies (1) . Besides, the published literature often reports the lack of tools for the assessment of linguistic and cognitive abilities that are adequate to the Brazilian social, cultural, and linguistic specificities (1)(2)(3)(4) . In this context, when linguistic components are evaluated, the use of stimuli and instructions only translated into other language becomes more limiting, because language conveys the examination of the language itself.…”

“…One instrument that has been commonly referred to in the published literature (3,4) , is The Montreal Toulouse (Modified MT Beta-86) test (5) , which has resulted from the cooperation between the French and the Canadian researchers of aphasia. The Montreal Toulouse (Modified MT Beta-86) test of aphasia comprises tasks that enable characterization of graphic and oral emission, listening and graphics understanding, and repetition and fluency.…”
