Schirmer, Barbara R.
American Annals of the Deaf, v134 n3 p219-22 Jul 1989
Twenty severely/profoundly hearing-impaired children, aged three-six, interacted with the investigator while playing with toys. A significant relationship was found between imaginative play and language development. No relationship was found between imaginative play and chronological age. Correspondences were found between language development and use of planned pretend and story line. (Author/JDD)
