Implications and Applications for Speech Communication. Alternative Techniques for Teaching Speech Communication to Learning Disabled Students in the University.
A college communication professor discusses methods which will help learning disabled (LD) as well as non-LD students. General techniques advocated include presenting information in a variety of ways, allowing opportunities for questions and clarification, using an organized presentation of information, and being flexible in assignments and evaluation. Questions surrounding the faculty's role in accommodating LD students are discussed. Specific suggestions for teaching a course on interpersonal communication include using tape-recorded materials, peer instruction, study questions, out-of-class projects, and study sessions to prepare for evaluation. Among appendixes are a course syllabus and a description of a role playing activity. (CL)
