Mapping the Meanings of Novel Visual Symbols by Youth with Moderate or Severe Mental Retardation.
Romski, Mary Ann; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v100 n4 p391-402 Jan 1996
The word-learning ability of 12 school-age subjects with moderate or severe mental retardation was assessed. Subjects used the System for Augmenting Language with visual-graphic symbols for communication. Ability to fast map novel symbols was found to relate to symbol achievement status. Implications for vocabulary acquisition by youth with mental retardation are drawn. (Author/DB)
