This investigation compared maternal remarks to language delayed offspring and maternal remarks to normal language developing offspring in an attempt to determine if and where differences occurred. The following questions were asked:
1) Do mothers of language delayed children present their children with a significantly different percentage of verbal constraints (commands and question) than do mothers of normal language developing children in a play situation?
2) Do mothers of language delayed children present their children with an equal number of utterances as mothers of normal language developing children in a play situation?
3) Is the maternal mean length of response equal?
4) Do mothers of language delayed children present their children with a significantly different percentage of types of remarks than mothers of normal language developing children?
