Computerized Verbal Content Analysis of Institutionalized Versus Community Retarded Children.
Montague, James C., Jr.; And Others
Analyzed was the verbal content of 20 institutionalized and 20 non-institutionalized retarded (mean IQ 64) children (mean age 10.7 years) matched for age and IQ to examine the hypothesis that sociological and psychological deficits exist for the institutionalized children and are reflected in language content. Unstructured speech samples were obtained from the children using the computerized General Inquirer System and the Harvard III Psychosociological Dictionary. Very few significant contentive category differences were noted between the institutionalized and non-institutionalized retarded children. (DB)
