The Role of Referential Speech in Sign Learning by Mentally Retarded Children: A Comparison of Total Communication and Sign-Alone Training.
Clarke, Sue; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v21 n4 p419-26 Win 1988
Five children with severe educational retardation, aged 5-12, were involved in sign training in which the spoken words corresponding to signs were receptively known to participants. Whether signs were taught concurrently or in a serial fashion, signs taught by total communication were acquired faster than those taught by sign-alone training. (Author/JDD)
