A Movement-Based Approach to Language Development in Children Who Are Deaf-Blind.
Wheeler, Linda; Griffin, Harold C.
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n5 p387-90 Dec 1997
This article explains a movement-based approach to the development of language in children with deaf-blindness. This approach uses the salient features of individuals or objects to stimulate use of language in the immediate environment, and later to refer to persons or concepts in a more abstract fashion. It stresses the use of structure and a hierarchy of media cues. (DB)
