This study investigates communicative intentions in children with developmental delays or intellectual disabilities, comparing them with typically developing peers matched by developmental or chronological age. Using a structured protocol, children’s communicative intentions were evaluated. Results revealed significant differences between children with developmental delays or intellectual disabilities and typically developing age-matched peers. However, comparisons with developmentally matched peers showed both similarities and differences in communicative intention profiles.
