Classroom Application of a Language Remediation Program.
Wiseman, Douglas E.
Definitions and specific breakdowns of four (auditory reception, visual sequential memory, verbal expression, and auditory closure) of the 12 language areas of the new Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities (ITPA) are presented. Auditory reception is defined as the ability to understand the meaning of materials or stimuli that are heard and includes abilities ranging from discrimination of noises to comprehension or interpretation of ideas presented at a high conceptual level. Visual sequential memory is viewed as the ability to recognize and/or recall stimuli presented sequentially and visually. Verbal expression is seen as the ability to express ideas through words encompassing verbal functions such as imitating words or sentences, describing an object, and carrying on a conversation. Auditory closure is defined as the ability to identify a word when only segments of the word are presented. Basic remedial strategies for training each area and examples of specific teaching activities are included. (RT)
