Activities for Developing Psycholinguistic Skills with Preschool Culturally Disadvantaged Children.
Karnes, Merle; And Others
Intended as a guide, not as a curriculum, the manual presents activities designed to improve communication and information processing skills in culturally disadvantaged preschool children, as well as to ameliorate deficits. Generally following the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities, except for a section on visual closure derived from Wepman, the manual is divided into 10 areas of communication processes: auditory decoding, visual decoding, auditory vocal association, visual-motor association, vocal encoding, motor encoding, auditory-vocal automatic, auditory-vocal sequential, visual-motor sequential, and visual closure. For each of the 10 areas, activities are suggested, such as games, puzzles, drawings, musical adaptations, art projects, or dramatics. Explanations for use and diagrams are provided. Commercially manufactured items for each area are listed with source of supply. (JB)
