Summer 1967 Clinics for Speech Handicapped Children. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects 1966-67.
Fox, David J.; And Others
Individualized and intensive daily therapy was provided to 870 New York City pupils with severe speech handicaps in this summer program funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I. The evaluation focuses on pupil's progress in correction of speech problems, the effectiveness of the clinical methods, the reactions of the staff and parents, and on the assessment of pupil attendance. Ratings by speech pathologists of pre- and post-program speech samples show improvement in more than one half of the students. Parents and teachers felt the program was successful. Average attendance approached 75 percent, considered more than satisfactory for a summer endeavor. Clinical methods were generally effective. In sum, the overall evaluation is positive and public funds were well spent. For an extensive description of ESEA Title I projects in New York, 1965-1968, see UD 007 904. (NH)
