Attention to differential diagnosis and diagnostic and testing procedures provides a framework for articles on the speech and hearing of the mentally retarded. Aspects considered include medical diagnosis, by Philip L. Calcagno; diagnostic evaluation, by Richmond S. Paine; developmental tests as diagnostic tools, by Katerina K. Haka; electrophysiologic techniques for testing hearing, by Robert Goldstein; and operant conditioning audiometry, by Lyle L. Lloyd. Edgar F. Waldon discusses threshold techniques and Morton Bortner treats psychological testing of brain injured retardates and psychological evaluation of perceptual deficit. Also described are a study of articulation tests for institutionalized children and diagnostic patterns of articulation, by Irene Blanchard; methods of studying language, by Richard L. Schiefelbusch; and the role of the social worker in diagnosis, by Helen L. Beck. (JB)
