The Role of the Speech Pathologist in the Management of Language Difficulties in Children. Conference Report (Ann Arbor, Mich., October 17-18, 1967).
Yeshiva Univ., New York, NY. Graduate School of Education.
This report describes the proceedings of a conference on the role of the speech pathologist. Four major questions were discussed: (1) the identification of the problem of providing programs for language handicapped children; (2) the current role of the speech pathologist in the management of programs for the language handicapped; (3) the future role of the speech pathologist; and (4) the relationship of speech pathology and audiology to other service disciplines. Conference participants recommended that current training practices be surveyed and curriculum needs for training pathologists be studied. Also, a formal mechanism for interdisciplinary coordination of specialties in the area of children's language difficulties should be established. (NH)
