Brinton, Bonnie; Fujiki, Martin
Topics in Language Disorders, v13 n3 p9-19 May 1993
This study contrasted communicative skills of 20 community-based adults with mental retardation with those of 20 institutionalized adults. The institutionalized group was more assertive and less responsive than the community-based group. The institutionalized group also devoted more utterances to inappropriate topics and provided fewer repairs that contained added information for their listener. (JDD)
