Cognitive-Pragmatic Approach III: A Group Therapy for Down's Syndrome Children.
Nagasaki, Tsutomu; And Others
RIEEC Report, v38 p51-58 Feb 1989
The study discusses an intervention program for three young Down's syndrome children who had shown communication problems with other children. A game situation was developed in which the Japanese children interacted among themselves and with adults. Rules were designed to provide a structured context for the game, and the rules were kept within the children's cognitive level. Through participation in the game, improvement was observed in the children's cognitive level, which brought about a higher pragmatic level in the children's expressions. (JDD)
