A Multimodality Language Program for Retarded Preschoolers.
Wolf, Judith M.; McAlonie, Mary Lynne
A language training approach employing a multimodality receptive language program was used with eight retarded preschool children to increase receptive language development and to stimulate verbal (expressive) language behavior. Day activity center teachers worked with the Ss three times weekly for 7 months using the Minnesota Early Language Development Sequence (MELDS) curriculum in a program combining two visual language systems: rebuses (picture words) and the vocabulary of American Sign Language. Results showed substantial gains in receptive language for all Ss and notable expressive language gains for half of the Ss. (SB)
