Motoric Factors Influencing the Selection of Vocabulary for Sign Production Programs

Publication Summary

Motoric factors that should be considered in selecting signs to teach handicapped learners are reviewed and discussed. They are grouped into three categories: prehension movement patterns, unilateral/bilateral movement patterns, and combinations of successive actions, with a fourth set included of less objectively definable factors involved in motor planning. Implications of the reviewed information relative to assessment and intervention conclude the article.
