Kuder, S. Jay; Bryen, Diane N.
Mental Retardation, v31 n3 p148-53 Jun 1993
Spoken communication between residents (n=10; ages 12-21) and staff members in an institution for people with mental retardation was examined. Findings suggest that staff members and residents differed in their use of topics, with staff members talking primarily about instructional and behavior management topics and residents focusing mostly on social topics.
