Blischak, Doreen M.; McDaniel, Mark A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n6 p1356-62 Dec 1995
Normally developing kindergarten children (n=45) were shown written words under 4 conditions representing various size and position relationships between line drawings and orthography. Results showed superior performance for word-only and enhanced-word conditions, over those conditions pairing small or large drawings with written words. Results are applied to individuals with little functional speech who use augmentative and alternative communication. (Author/DB)
