The distinctive feature patterns represented in the speech of children with SLI resemble those seen in the speech of younger normally developing children. However there are two Strident
Menyuk(1968) observed that once segment carrying ( + strident) appear in the speech of normally developing children, this feature is relatively resilient, even if other features in the target sound are in error. However data from Leonard ( 1973) and Mc Reynolds & Husten ( 1971) suggest that children with SLI retain (+ strident) least often.
