A Description of Moderately Mentally Retarded Adolescents' Responses to Written Language.
Feldman, David; Wiseman, Donna L.
Reading and writing behavior of 12 moderately mentally retarded adolescents was examined. Data were collected on 11 language tasks, including drawing, reacting to print in a book, being read to, and answering questions about reading and writing. Interviews and surveys regarding attitudes toward reading and home environment were completed as well as miscue analysis of Ss' oral reading. Results indicated that Ss' reading and writing behavior could be analyzed, categorized, and measured qualitatively within a particular psycholinguistic paradigm. (Author)
