Speech Correction in the Schools. Third Edition.
Eisenson, Jon; Ogilvie, Mardel
The volume, intended to introduce readers to the problems and therapeutic needs of speech impaired school children, first presents general considerations and background knowledge necessary for basic insights of the classroom teacher and the school speech clinician in relation to the speech handicapped child. Discussed are the classification and incidence of speech defects, speech correction services, and normal speech (standards of speech, the mechanism for speech, production of speech sounds, and language development). Emphasized are the roles and scope of the classroom teacher and the speech clinician in cooperating to achieve common objectives. Focused upon in the second half of the book are specific speech problems and how they affect the child's overall functioning. Delayed or retarded speech, defects of articulation, voice disorders, stuttering, speech and impaired hearing, cleft palate, and brain damage or dysfunction are examined. In each case the discussion covers the nature and cause of speech disturbance, implications for therapy, therapeutic techniques of the speech clinician, and the related role of the classroom teacher.
