Summary/Abstract: On the background of the narrative definition and its research, the Questionnaire of Parents´ Beliefs on Talking with Children and Storytelling is introduced. The study is based on the analysis of 8 questions of the questionnaire asking on circumstances and topics of the parent-child conversations on previous events. The survey group was composed of 11 parents of intact children aged 5 – 7 and 11 parents of children with specific language impairment at the same age. Differences in quantity and quality of input between these two groups have been compared. Results show disparities among groups, which were statistically confirmed in area of topics of talking. Qualitative evaluation suggests differences also in frequency of talks and other areas, but more extensive investigation is necessary to validate these findings.
