Gesture When There Is No Visual Model.
Iverson, Jana M.
New Directions for Child Development, n79 p89-100 Spr 1998
Although gestural communication is largely visuo-spatial, the extent to which a visual model is necessary for the development of gesture is unclear. This article summarizes recent research on gesture production by congenitally blind speakers and discusses the implications of these results for the hypothesized link between gesture and thought.
