Prendergast, Susan G.; McCollum, Jeanette A.
American Annals of the Deaf, v141 n1 p11-18 Mar 1996
Sixteen dyads comprised either of deaf toddlers and their deaf mothers or deaf toddlers and their hearing mothers were compared on the use and success of various means for establishing mutual attention for communication. Results suggested the deaf-deaf dyads experienced significantly more episodes of mutual attention because the deaf mothers were more active and the deaf toddlers more responsive. (DB)
