THE IDENTIFICATION OF KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN LEAST LIKELY TO SHOW SPONTANEOUS IMPROVEMENT IN SPEECH SOUND ARTICULATION.
TEMPLIN, MILDRED C.
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE MEASURED ARTICULATION PERFORMANCE OF KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN COULD PREDICT WHICH CHILDREN WOULD DEVELOP SATISFACTORY ARTICULATION AND WHICH CHILDREN WOULD CONTINUE TO MISARTICULATE AND NEED SPEECH THERAPY BY THE SECOND GRADE. IN 1960, 2,150 PREKINDERGARTEN AND KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN WERE GIVEN A PICTURE ARTICULATION TEST AND AN IMITATION ARTICULATION TEST. IN 1962, THE CHILDREN WERE TESTED WITH AN IMITATION ARTICULATION TEST, THE SPENCER ARTICULATION TEST, AND AN INTELLIGIBILITY RATING. FOR EACH OF THESE TESTS A CUTOFF SCORE WAS SET TO IDENTIFY APPROXIMATELY THE SAME PERCENTAGE OF CHILDREN FROM THE TEST GROUP AS WERE RECEIVING SPEECH THERAPY IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. RESULTS SHOWED THE PERCENTAGE OF GIRLS IDENTIFIED BY ALL THREE TESTS WAS SMALLER THAN THE PERCENTAGE OF BOYS. THE 1962 IMITATION ARTICULATION TEST PREDICTION WAS SATISFACTORY FOR BOYS AND GIRLS, BUT SOMEWHAT BETTER FOR GIRLS. THE 1962 SPENCER ARTICULATION TEST PREDICTION WAS SATISFACTORY FOR BOYS AND GIRLS, BUT GENERALLY BETTER FOR THE BOYS. PREDICTION ON THE 1962 INTELLIGIBILITY RATING WAS NOT SATISFACTORY. THE HYPOTHESIS WAS NOT SUPPORTED THAT FEWER CHILDREN SCORING INCONSISTENTLY ON THE 1960 TESTS WOULD NEED SPEECH THERAPY IN 1962 THAN CHILDREN WHO SCORED CONSISTENTLY IN 1960.
