Mothers' Verbal Directives to Delayed and Nondelayed Children.
Garrard, Kay R.
Mental Retardation, v27 n1 p11-18 Feb 1989
A study of the effects of child age and intelligence on mothers' use of verbal directives with delayed and non-delayed children aged 2.5-3 years and 4.5-5 years found mothers gave delayed children significantly more directives. Mean directive use was similar for both age groups, but mean length of utterance was longer for older children. (Author/MSE)
