Conversational Roles of Children with Developmental Delays and Their Mothers in Natural and Semi-Structured Situations.
Hecht, Barbara Frant; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v97 n4 p419-29 Jan 1993
This study of the pragmatic characteristics of conversations between mothers and their 30 preschool children with developmental delays found significant differences between naturally occurring and researcher-introduced semistructured situations in the proportions of conversational turns taken and the pragmatic functions of mothers' and children's utterances. The type of activity also influenced the interaction. (Author/JDD)
