Rittenhouse, Robert K.
Journal of Childhood Communication Disorders, v10 n2 p201-06 Spr-Sum 1987
The study examined the rate and order of conservation in 24 deaf children, ages 8.2 to 12.9 years using standard Piagetian instructions and procedures in sign language. Even the older children failed to demonstrate control over the conservation concept suggesting the presence of a cognitive difference in deaf children. (DB)
