Abstract

Naturally occurring peer-directed communicative interactions of 13 youth with mental retardation and little or no functional speech who used the System for Augmenting Language (SAL) as their primary means of communication were described. Findings suggest that this system was an integral component of both successful and effective conversations and may be one important means of enhancing social interactions with peer communicative partners who have and do not have mental retardation.
