Evaluation of a home based language training program with severely mentally handicapped children

, : Evaluation of a home based language training program with severely mentally handicapped children. Behaviour Research & Therapy 20(3): 243-250

A home-based language training program was carried out with preschool and school-age severely mentally handicapped children, over a 16-18 mo. period. Compared to control groups, the experimental groups did not show significantly greater progress on norm-referenced measures of language development, although all groups showed significant improvement over time. The implications of these findings are discussed in the light of a number of methodological problems with the study.
