Stone, C. Addison; Connell, Phil J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v36 n3 p599-608 Jun 1993
Two alternative instruction conditions (modeling and imitation) were used to teach a novel morpheme, embodied in a visual symbol system, to 21 children (ages 5-6) with specific language impairment (SLI) and 2 peer groups. Results indicated that imitation practice afforded assistance to children with SLI and their age-matched peers in morpheme production. (Author/JDD)
