Some Effects of Verbal Instruction on Learning by Developmentally Handicapped Adults.
Hughson, E. Anne; Brown, Roy I.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v9 n3 p107-14 Sep 1983
In two studies of verbal instruction of young mentally retarded adults, increasing the speed of verbal instruction reduced the level of nonverbal performance, particulary in subjects with poor nonverbal scores. Slight increases in speed of instruction can have major and negative impacts. Redundancy in verbal instruction inhibits nonverbal learning. (Author/CL)
