ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between executive function and narrative skills in preschool children. A total of 33 children aged four to six participated in this study. This study used the fruit Stroop, nonword repetition, word list recall, and matrix tests to examine executive function, while story comprehension and story grammar production task were used to investigate narrative skills. Stepwise multiple regression was applied to examine the executive function tasks that predict story comprehension and story grammar production respectively. The results revealed that the word list recall task and the fruit Stroop task were significant predictors of story comprehension and story grammar production, respectively, suggesting the contribution of executive function to preschool children’s narrative skills.
