The Status of Speech Pathology and Audiology Programs in Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Mann, James W.; May, Jane V.
Addressed primarily to the prospective as well as the working, speech and hearing clinician, the study investigated the current practices and status of public school speech and hearing programs in Mississippi. A questionnaire was forwarded to 49 speech and hearing clinicians to determine professional title and relationships, screening and diagnosis, classification and distribution of disorders, remedial procedures, supervision, and speech improvement. The results were felt to point up such needs as standardization of professional titles at the state level, more consistent and precise methods of examination of speech disorders; some standard program management practices; more joint responsibility shared with the superintendents, parents, principals, teachers, and therapist; more teacher guidance from the speech clinician. A copy of the questionnaire completed by the speech and hearing personnel is included in the appendix. (CD)
