Additional Information: The first investigation in any signed language of Specific Language Impairment in deaf children, which has important implications for our understanding of the cognitive underpinnings of SLI, but also for the identification of children with signing difficulties, who have hitherto been largely unnoticed in the classroom. This paper is the first in a series on this group of children. I presented the study in an invited keynote presentation at the Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition conference in September 2011.
