Functional communication: analyzing the nonlinguistic skills of individuals with severe or profound handicaps
DEVELOPMENT OF NON-LINGUISTIC COMMUNICATION SKILLS, which presents the results of research accomplished through the joint sponsorship of the SonomaDevelopment Center (SDS) and the College of Education of Florida Atlantic University (FAU), examines the development of prelanguage and nonlingu- istic skills in individuals with various types and degrees of developmental disabilities. Utilizing the dichotomies that may exist betweencommunication and language, the book explores communication skills rather than formal language systems acquisition.
