Speech Therapy for Disadvantaged Pupils in Non-public Schools. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Projects in New York City, 1967-68.
This New York City school district educational project was designed to provide speech therapy for educationally disadvantaged pupils with severely defective speech who were in attendance in nonpublic schools. The speech therapy was provided by 42 teachers for 7,385 children. Participants met for one-half hour in small therapy groups. The project ran from September 1967 to June 1968, with speech instruction beginning in October. The inservice training of the corrective speech teachers was useful and effective. Nonpublic school teachers, administrators, and parents were satisfactorily informed of and involved in the project. Those pupils whose records were examined in detail did show improvement in speech patterns, although the physical space in which the therapy was carried on was often inadequate and inappropriate. For a report on the 1966-67 project, see ED 026 756. (EM)
