Special Language Programming for Exceptional Children with Language Disorders.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Div. of Special Education.
Papers of the special study institute on Special Language Programming for Exceptional Children with Language Disorders focus on the following objectives: delineation of the development and functions of language as related to special language problems, clarification of the role of the speech and language specialist, and establishment of guidelines by presenting authoritative information on how speech and language specialists can be more effective. Following the keynote address by Michael Marge on the role of speech and hearing specialists in the management of language disorders, nine papers deal with three major topic areas. In the first of these areas, language development programs for preschool children, normal and deviant language acquisition and clinical goals for preschool language programs are discussed. Three papers concentrate upon language programs for children with language problems related to mental retardation, the second major subject area. Language training for children using dialectal forms of language, the third section, contains articles treating the role of the speech professional in dealing with problems of Negro dialect speakers, false assumptions about the nonstandard Negro dialect, training speech therapists for treatment of minority children, and implications for California school programs.
