Down's Syndrome Children's Early Comprehension of WH Questions Asked in Naturalistic and Experimental Settings. Research Report No. 87.
Hesse, Kathleen; And Others
Evaluated was the comprehension of maternal and experimentally posed Wh questions (such as what, why and who) by two 5-year-old Down's Syndrome children. Weekly taperecordings of mother-child play situations and videotapes of individual sessions with the experimenter were analyzed in terms of form, content, and appropriateness of Ss' response. Results indicated similarity with the first stage of normal children's interrogative comprehension. Findings had implications for teachers' questioning techniques. (The description of photographs used with the experimental set of Wh questions is provided in one of three appendixes). (CL)
