Bird, Elizabeth Kay-Raining; Gaskell, Annette; Babineau, Michelle Dallaire; MacDonald, Susan
Journal of Communication Disorders, v33 n3 p241-66 May-Jun 2000
Novel word learning in three conditions (signed only, spoken only, signed and spoken combined) was compared for young children (N=10) with Down syndrome and mental-age matched controls. No group differences in frequency of imitations or productions were obtained. The frequency of imitations was highest in the combined condition. In the combined condition, the spoken portion was almost exclusively produced. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
