Teaching Idiom Comprehension to Children with Mental Retardation.
Ezell, Helen K.; Goldstein, Howard
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v25 n1 p181-91 Spr 1992
Four nine year olds with mild mental retardation received training on the meaning of idiomatic phrases. All children demonstrated learning and an ability to understand the learned idioms when presented in unfamiliar contexts. Children were able to generalize their receptive learning to an expressive task with varying levels of success. (Author/JDD)
