Emergence of Visual-Graphic Symbol Combinations by Youth with Moderate or Severe Mental Retardation.
Wilkinson, Krista M.; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n4 p883-95 Aug 1994
In the first of 2 studies, 7 subjects with severe mental retardation (ages 6-20) using augmentative communication produced untaught symbol combinations resembling those of young speaking language learners. The second study found that modeled combinations did not resemble the subjects' productions, suggesting the augmented communicators used symbols as speaking children use words orally. (Author/DB)
