The development of gestural usage as a response to intraverbal stimuli was investigated in 89 five- to seven-year-old school children. A modified version of the Intraverbal Gesture subtest of the Parsons Language Sample was employed. A significant developmental pattern of intraverbal responses was obtained. Implications in terms of the Skinnerian concept of intraverbal behavior are discussed.
