The concept of language deficit has been used to explain underachievement particularly in those pupils whose home circumstances might tend to leave their language skills underdeveloped. In this sense it is an explanation closely linked to theories of cultural and social deprivation and to the concept of social class. See also literacy hour; National Literacy Strategy.
