Subsequently, many students who are labeled as “clinically language impaired” prior to, or just beginning, formal education in preschool or kindergarten, do not necessarily have problems learning to read initially (Catts, Fey, Tomblin, & Zhang) Their later “decline” in reading comprehension is thought to be related to the changing nature of reading comprehension assessments: the texts used to assess reading comprehension in the early grades require less complex mental models and very limited language processing, allowing those with weak language skills to answer basic comprehension questions as accurately as their typically developing peers.

According to the ‘substratist’ hypothesis, creoles are again created by second language learners, rather than children, only the source of added structure is the first language of the learner. (Lumsden 1999 argues that numerous traces of a variety of African languages in Haitian creole support this hypothesis.)
