4 Only for 15/22 subgroups. 5 Only for about half of the sample. 6 Includes predictive power and sensitivity/specificity findings in addition to group differences.
RESULTS: Analyses Available Does each test allow for systematic analysis of both traditional (initial, medial, final position) accuracy and phonological patterns (processes)? Did it include formal analysis of vowels? Does it examine multisyllabic words?
