Teaching Word Recognition to Non-Verbal Cerebral Palsied Young Adults Utilizing Word-Family Patterns and Carba-Linguaduc Electronic Communications Equipment.
The use of Carba-linguaduc equipment (an electronic device that facilitates communication in the nonverbal) in the teaching of basic reading skills was compared to gestural yes/no responses in a study with four severely cerebral palsied/moderately retarded young adults (ages 20 to 30). Results indicated that significant language learning was present, and that the Carba-linguaduc equipment was more effective and objective than the gestural yes/no responses for this population. Among appendixes are sight word lists and forms on physical control evaluation and the placement of letters on display boards. (PHR)
