Sharakes & Greenfield (1982) examined the presuppositions of children with language disorder who were beyond the one word stage. They found that both language disordered (SLI) children & normal language matched controls encoded the new or changing elements on the situation rather than unchanging elements and for both groups. This encoding was primarily verbal.
These studies reveal that children with SLI demonstrate basic presuppositional knowledge.
