Maternal Responsivity Predicts the Prelinguistic Communication that Facilitates Generalized Intentional Communication.
Warren, Steven F.; Yoder, Paul J.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v41 n5 p1207-19 Oct 1998
This study examined whether maternal responsivity would predict the extent to which prelinguistic milieu teaching (PMT) facilitated generalized intentional communication better than a contrast small-group treatment with 58 children (ages 17 to 36 months) with developmental disabilities. If mothers were relatively responsive before treatment, PMT was superior. If mothers were relatively unresponsive, the small group treatment was superior. (Author/DB)
