Characteristics of Children Receiving Speech and Hearing Service in Los Angeles Area Schools. Final Report.
Coates, Nadine H.; And Others
The characteristics of pupils receiving service in speech and hearing programs are presented in detail utilizing a newly developed standard case record. The evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the case record and the identification of areas in which school clinicians have difficulty obtaining information have been incorporated into the project. The description of the project is in three parts. Volume I contains the results of a workshop for participating districts. The workshop examined the project data, identified problem areas, reported on related research and considered the role of the speech and hearing specialist in educational services. Volume II contains detailed descriptions of pupils in the complete caseloads of 212 school clinicians in 39 school speech and hearing programs in 1966-67. Volume III consists of the results of three studies of clinician agreement and reliability. The studies represent a first step toward identifying critical areas of disagreement in assessing oral communication skills. The volumes are bound together in the form of a final report. (Author/WW)
