comprehension

In this study, researchers performed an experiment to investigate whether children can use a visual context to support auditory processing, whether children can do this when the language they hear is very complex and whether the memory abilities of children influence this skill. It was found that children with both high and low memory spans made use of a visual picture in speech comprehension and that they did this for even very complex language structures. However, children with a high-span memory integrated contextual information more fully than the other children.
