Translucency of Sign and Concreteness of Gloss in the Manual Sign Learning of Moderately/Severely Mentally Retarded Students.
Luftig, Richard L.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n3 p279-86 Nov 1983
Effects of high and low levels of manual sign translucency and referential concreteness on the manual sign learning of 40 moderately/severely mentally retarded adolescents were investigated. High levels of translucency were a significant facilitator while low levels inhibited learning. Concreteness did not significantly affect sign learning. (Author/CL)
