Hemmeter, Mary Louise; Kaiser, Ann P.
Education and Treatment of Children, v13 n4 p331-46 Nov 1990
This paper provides a conceptual model of the language learning environment of young children, incorporating child engagement with the physical environment, contributions of child and caregiver, and caregiver mediation of physical environment. A case study illustrates the impact of a relatively simple home environmental intervention on a three-year-old developmentally delayed child's language use. (DB)
