Language Preference and Communication Development of a Hearing and Deaf Twin Pair.
Gaines, Rosslyn; Halpern-Felsher, Bonnie L.
American Annals of the Deaf, v140 n1 p47-55 Mar 1995
This observational study examined the development and use of communication in a pair of deaf and hearing monozygotic twins from 13 to 36 months of age. Both children were enrolled in a total communication preschool program. In contrast to the hearing twin, the deaf twin used imitative (rather than responsive) signs and gestures. (Author/DB)
