Studies of Verbal Abstracting with the Mentally Retarded.
Tymchuk, Alexander J.
Although studies of verbal abstracting with the cultural-familial mentally retarded have demonstrated a deficit in the ability, the deficit may not be indicative of a basic cognitive deficit; rather, it may be due to a lack of experience with language of a higher conceptual nature. Several training strategies have been followed to overcome the deficit in verbal abstracting primarily through increasing the child's experience with higher conceptual levels of language. The strategies have been successful in overcoming this deficit on similar tasks, but more information is needed to determine how to enhance generalization of performance to dissimilar tasks. These strategies offer some implications for classroom practice. (Author)
