Narrative competence is an important step of development for language and cognitive abilities of children that provide a conceptual framework for organizing the knowledge. The general aim of this study was to investigate the relation between narrative competence, verbal and non-verbal intelligence in Italian preschoolers and schoolers children. Eighty children divided into two groups of age, 5-years-olds and 7-years-years-olds and we were asked them to tell a famous traditional story. The findings demonstrate that specific correlations between cognitive and linguistic performances change along growing age, suggesting a dynamic process between language and cognitive development.
