Mendez Perez, Anita
Bilingual Research Journal, v24 n3 p277-94 Sum 2000
A study examined beliefs about language acquisition among seven Spanish-speaking Mexican American mothers with young children (24-37 months) receiving early intervention services for language disabilities. Emerging themes included mothers'"alternative" explanations for children's communication difficulties, mothers' efforts to help children develop Spanish language skills, differences in maternal speech, and misconceptions about early intervention.
