Features of Development of Communicative Competence in Children with Mental Retardation

Zarechnaya A.A., Senior Lecturer, Chair of Preschool Education and Psychology, Department of Psychology in Education, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia,
The article presents the results of the study of communicative competence in children with mental retardation. Experimental data on the development of communicative competence in children with mental retardation are presented, a comparative analysis with the data of normally developing children is performed. The connection between types of communicative competence in preschool children with mental retardation, their ability to cooperate with their peers: to plan, coordinate and carry out joint actions to achieve a common goal is empirically revealed. It is proved that communicative competence as a regulatory mechanism of the program of joint activity in children with mental retardation is formed at a delayed pace and requires additional training in order to develop the ability to perform group tasks. Experimental data allow to develop a model of communicative competence formation in children with mental retardation on the basis of the development of the allocated communicative competences in the course of joint activity with a peer.

Keywords: communicative competence, social interaction, preschool children, mental retardation, social and communicative sphere
