Maternal Communication Style with Mentally Retarded Children.
Mahoney, Gerald
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v92 n4 p352-59 Jan 1988
Evaluation of mothers' style of communicating with one- to three-year-old mentally retarded children (N=60) identified six maternal style factors: attentiveness, responsiveness, persistent requesting, child orientation, quality of requests, and quality of information. Children's verbal behavior was fostered best by responsive mothers who focused on child-oriented topics. (Author/DB)
