CHILDHOOD APHASIA AND BRAIN DAMAGE--A DEFINITION.
RAPPAPORT, SHELDON R.
A SYMPOSIUM WAS HELD AT THE PATHWAY SCHOOL TO ESTABLISH WORKING DEFINITIONS OF APHASIC AND BRAIN-INJURED CHILDREN. BASIC NEEDS WERE IDENTIFIED AND PROGRAMS WERE INDICATED WHICH WOULD RESULT IN HABILITATION. THE PARTICIPANTS AGREED THAT SPECIALIZED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO MEET SPECIFIC NEEDS ARE NECESSARY, AND WELL-TRAINED, SYMPATHETIC TEACHERS WHO ARE CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING A HIGHLY STRUCTURED ATMOSPHERE ARE REQUIRED. THE PROGRAMS FOR APHASIC AND BRAIN-INJURED CHILDREN DIFFER. THE STRUCTURED PROGRAM FOR THE APHASIC CHILD IS CONSTRUCTED AROUND SPEECH AND LANGUAGE, WHEREAS THE CLASSROOM TEACHING MATERIALS AND CURRICULUM FOR THE BRAIN-INJURED CHILD ARE DESIGNED TO AID EGO DEVELOPMENT. THE AUTHOR FEELS THAT PSYCHOTHERAPY IS FREQUENTLY NEEDED FOR THE BRAIN-INJURED CHILD BUT SELDOM FOR THE APHASIC CHILD. PUBLIC PRESSURE TO CARE FOR THESE CHILDREN IS BEING FELT. FOUR CASE HISTORIES AND A 35-ITEM BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED BY THE LIVINGSTON PUBLISHING COMPANY, NARBERTH, PENNSYLVANIA, 128 PAGES, $2.00. (MW)
