Abstract

Children at high risk (N = 135) for drug abuse were compared to children at low average risk (N = 208) when they were 10-12 years of age and retested at 16 years of age on tests of intellectual ability and language competence. The high risk subjects' performance was significantly poorer on several measures of language ability. The magnitude of effect increased between the two testings, indicating that the high risk subjects became more impaired. These findings suggest that poor language mediation, as one facet of executive cognitive functioning, is a component of the liability for substance abuse.
