Penner, Kandace A.; Williams, William N.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v55 n2 p395-401 Oct 1982
The relationship between sign and verbal learning was explored using 10 severely mentally retarded adults. They were taught color labels in sign, verbal, or sign and verbal groups. Sign labels tended to be learned more efficiently; combined sign and verbal training improved verbal learning but not sign learning. (Author/CM)
