Mother-Child Interaction in Preverbal Children with Down Syndrome.
Fischer, Martin A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v52 n2 p179-90 May 1987
Social-communicative transactions between five young, preverbal children with Down Syndrome and their mothers were compared with those of five developmentally matched nonretarded child-mother dyads. Although overall similarities were found, Down Syndrome children initiated less communication even though their mothers responded more to their social-communicative signals. (Author/KM)
