International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v43 n2 p147-65 1996
This article discusses communicative intent in persons with severe intellectual disability in the context of intervention studies reporting the acquisition of graphic symbol use. The article reviews communicative intent as formulated within psycholinguistic models of language acquisition which emphasize pragmatics and the functions of communicative behavior in social contexts and relates them to the development of graphic symbol use.
