This study investigated the effect of distracting linguistic background noise on children’s ability to perform three-part commands. A total of twelve first grade subjects, six “normal” and six reading delayed, were individually administered a series of twenty, three-part commands. Each child performed once in quiet and once in a noise environment, and the performances in those two conditions were compared.
