Pointing and Interaction Initiation: The Behavior of Young Children with Down's Syndrome When Looking at Books.
Wootton, Anthony J.
Journal of Child Language, v17 n3 p565-89 Oct 1990
Verbal and nonverbal components of pointing initiation by Down's Syndrome children when looking at books were studied. Analysis of initiation patterns and point duration revealed possible developmental progression from a stage where point and exchange duration are linked to a stage where pointing becomes more detached from the exchange.
