The Family as Supportive Personnel in Speech and Hearing Remediation.
Gerber, Sanford E., Ed.
The proceedings of the conference/short course on the role of the family as supportive personnel in speech and hearing remediation focus upon the family and its relationship and interaction with the speech, language, or hearing handicapped individual. The purpose of the course was to emphasize the importance of utilizing the family as a manpower resource in the fields of speech pathology and audiology. The five major papers concern voice disorders and the family environment, the family of the laryngectomee, family influences on stuttering and stuttering therapy, family role in the management of the deaf child, and the role of the family in aphasia. Substantial discussions follow each presentation. (KW)
