Freeing Talk from the Here-and-Now: The Role of Event Knowledge and Maternal Scaffolds.
Topics in Language Disorders, v10 n3 p14-29 Jun 1990
Nondisabled only children (N=10) were observed and videotaped at home with their mothers in scripted, free-play, and novel contexts to probe uses of temporally displaced (TD) communication and maternal contributions to its development. Scaffolded maternal speech was found important to TD speech development and context-sensitivity underscored as a major issue. (PB)
