Moellman-Landa, Rebecca; Olswang, Lesley B.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v5 n2 p117-33 Aug 1984
Describes a study of seven language-impaired children that examined the presence and effect of adult communication behaviors that reportedly facilitate children's verbal output. Consecutive adult and child utterances were coded to identify adults' sharing of child's focus, child utterance length, adult utterance type, topic maintenance, lexical contingency, and time between utterances.
