Language Development in a Non-Vocal Child.
Rogow, Sally M.
B.C. Journal of Special Education, v17 n3 p201-08 1993
This study investigated the semantic and syntactic knowledge of a child (age 12) with severe multiple disabilities who could read, write, and comprehend 2 languages but did not initiate conversation. The study demonstrates that high levels of language comprehension and ability to read and write do not automatically transfer to conversational competence or narrative ability. (Author/JDD)
