Kahn, James V.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v24 n1 p113-19 Mar 1981
Twelve nonverbal, hearing, retarded children (4 to 8 years old) were matched and then randomly assigned to sign language training, speech training, and placebo groups. The findings were interpreted as indicating that some nonverbal retarded children will benefit more from sign language than speech training. (Author)
