Mothers' Attributions of Communication to Prelinguistic Behavior of Developmentally Delayed and Mentally Retarded Infants.
Yoder, Paul J.; Feagans, Lynne
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v93 n1 p36-43 Jul 1988
Sixteen mother-handicapped infant pairs participated in a study which found that mothers of severely handicapped babies did not attribute less communication to infants' behavior than did mothers of mildly handicapped infants. Through the process of adaptation, mothers' attributions of communication were influenced by factors besides the infants' actual behavior. (Author/JDD)
