Multisign Combinations by Children with Intellectual Impairments: An Analysis of Language Skills.
Grove, Nicola; Dockrell, Julie
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n2 p309-23 Apr 2000
Two studies explored linguistic development in sign and speech of 10 youth (ages 12-16) with severe intellectual impairments who used manual signs (Makaton vocabulary) for communication. Analysis of semantic relations, lexical development, and word order suggested the children's language had not developed beyond mean length of utterance stage 1. Results are discussed in relation to language input by teachers. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
