Haas, Nancy S.
Exceptionality, v6 n3 p149-70 1996
The communication between three mothers and their preschool children with language impairments was examined in a three-year qualitative study. The mothers had developed a communication system within the family that consisted of idiosyncratic signs and signals that conveyed intentional messages. The mothers found it difficult to change these limiting communication strategies. (CR)
