Abstract

El objetivo principal de este estudio consistió en la baremación y el análisis del desarrollo evolutivo, en una amplia muestra de población infantil de habla española, de dos pruebas destinada a la evaluación de la fluidez verbal (semántica y fonológica). Analizamos el desarrollo de ambas tareas dentro de un contexto de diseño transversal. Se seleccionó una muestra de 1.032 sujetos con edades comprendidas entre los 6 años y 3 meses y los 12 años y cuatro meses que cursaban entre primero y sexto de educación primaria. La fluidez verbal semántica se evaluó con la tarea de evocación �de animales en un minuto� y la fluidez verbal fonológica se evaluó con las consignas �F, A, M�. Los resultados muestran una mejora progresiva en el rendimiento en función de la edad en ambas pruebas. Se presentan tablas de medias, desviación estándar y percentiles para los distintos grupos de edad.
