The Expressive Communication of Hearing Mothers and Deaf Infants.
Spencer, Patricia Elizabeth
American Annals of the Deaf, v138 n3 p275-283 Jul 1993
This paper describes the expressive communication and language of seven hearing mothers and their infants with deafness. Mothers who signed most frequently reported that other family members and friends were also learning and using signs. Frequency of infants' sign production at 18 months correlated with frequency of mothers' sign production when infants were 12 and 18 months. (Author/JDD)
