A Prelanguage Program for Five Severely Retarded Children.
McAlonie, Mary Lynne; Wolf, Judith M.
Five severely retarded emotionally disturbed children (2-7 years old) were exposed to a prelanguage sensorimotor program for 20 weeks. The program emphasized the use of exploratory behavior and gesture imitation. Results suggested that object permanence could be encouraged using these activities but that the approach used in training imitative behavior may have been inappropriate. (Author)
