This investigation looked at the vocabulary learning and use, and social and communication growth of 8 severely handicapped toddlers under two different language conditions. A computer-based approach was compared to traditional intervention techniques. Treatment conditions were administered in randomized order by two graduate student clinicians. Communication growth was assessed by using a standard set of measures administered before the intervention, at midpoint between the two treatment conditions, and at the end. The results from this study indicated that the subjects made notable progress regardless of the treatment condition received.
