Establishment of Symbolic Communication in Persons with Severe Retardation.
Romski, Mary Ann; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v53 n1 p94-107 Feb 1988
Three of four severely retarded adolescents and young adults learned to use computer-based lexigrams to request foods and, subsequently, objects. Additional request experience with lexigrams resulted in consistent improvement on labeling and comprehension tasks, emergence of subject-initiated lexigram communications, and facilitation of spoken language comprehension and/or production.
