A Comparison of Mother Speech to Down's Syndrome, Hearing-Impaired, and Normal-Hearing Children.
Matey, Christopher; Kretschmer, Richard
Volta Review, v87 n4 p205-13 May 1985
Audio recordings of mother/child pairs in interaction were made during a 20-minute play situation. Results suggest that mothers modify certain aspects of their speech to both Down's syndrome and hearing-impaired children. Findings substantiated previous research indicating that setting is an important consideration in research dealing with mother speech to children. (Author/CL)
