    Abstract

    The authors of this article aim to show how imitation can be used in developing communication with individuals with deafblindness. Using a case study of a twelve year old girl who has some residual hearing they examine how verbal imitation of a repetitive sign sequence used by the chid led to the development of her communication and language.
