Psychoneurological Assessment and Treatment of Language Disorders in Learning Disabled Adolescents.
Kendall, William S.; Battles, Debra A.
The study investigated differences in language development between two groups of learning disabled (LD) high school students, 40 LD students in secondary regular classes, and 40 LD students integrated into regular secondary classes and receiving additional support through learning resource centers. The Test of Adolescent Language (TOAL) was used to measure Ss' language disorders. Language development of LD adolescents in learning resource centers was lower than that of LD adolescents in regular classes. Learning resource center group Ss were older and displayed lower IQ scores than the regular class group. A review of the literature supported the importance of psychoneurological assessment, sensory integration therapy, and development. (Author/SB)
