Language Sampling in Deaf Children: A Comparison of Oral and Signed Communication Modes.
Knell, Susan M.; Klonoff, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v16 n6 p435-47 Nov 1983
Fourteen deaf elementary children (eight from total communication and six from oral classes) and seven non-hearing-impaired peers were given tasks designed to elicit spontaneous language. Results favored hearing children on all measures. When comparing the two deaf groups, few differences emerged in measures of verbal output and communicativeness. (Author/CL)
