Recent Developments in Psycholinguistics: The Study of Language and Its Impact on Speech Pathology and Speech Education.
Rees, Norma S.
The study of language has had a greater impact on speech pathology and speech education than any other scholarly discipline in recent years. Researchers in the field of speech pathology must now give attention--especially in caring for the growing numbers of children found to have language difficulties--to the study of psycholinguistics. Work in these areas of speech and speech education must involve knowledge of the test instruments (for example, the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities) and the detailed research from which they spring Developments in linguistics, psychology, and, to some extent, behaviorism require careful awareness of these fields for any worker in speech pathology and speech therapy, especially in regard to children.
