Fifty-eight prelinguistic children with developmental disabilities and their mothers participated in an experimental test of whether intentional communication elicits maternal responses purported to facilitate language development. Results indicated that treatment effects on maternal responses varied by pre-treatment maternal education level and that post-treatment intentional communication to mothers was, at least partly, responsible for the effect on post-treatment maternal responses.
