The social-communicative transactions between 5 preverbal children with Down syndrome and their mothers were compared with those of 5 developmentally matched nonretarded child-mother dyads. Although overall similarities were evidenced, between-group differences were observed in the percentage of child-initiated social-communicative signals used and in the levels of contingent maternal responsiveness.
