Early Intervention with Young Hearing-Impaired Children. Occasional Paper Number Three.
Power, D. J., Ed.; And Others
Five papers focus on issues of early intervention with young hearing impaired children. The papers were presented at a seminar in 1981 in Queensland, Australia. A. Hayes begins with "The Emergence of Interest in Social Interaction in Infancy," in which he considers the role of metaphors in influencing intervention research. D. Power and G. Elias follow with "Developing Language in Young Disabled Children," which examines the form, content, and function of language. "Research on Mothers Interacting with Hearing Impaired Children" by T. Cross et al. reviews findings regarding syntax, stereotyped utterances, discourse features, speech style variables, and functional codes. In the fourth paper, H. Mohay reports on "A Longitudinal Study of the Language Development of Three Deaf Children of Hearing Parents." The final paper, by M. Hyde et al. presents results from their study entitled "The Use of Verbal and Non-Verbal Control Techniques by Mothers of Hearing Impaired Infants." (CL)
