Lederberg, Amy R.; Everhart, Victoria S.
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v5 n4 p303-22 Fall 2000
Comparison of communication between hearing mothers and their deaf or hearing children (n=80) at child-ages 22 months and 3 years found most of the differences in communication by mothers of deaf and hearing children seemed attributable to the deaf children's linguistic delays. Results suggest that intervention efforts should focus on fostering children's linguistic development directly. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
