The Effects of a Structured Language Training Program with Moderately Retarded Children.
Grill, J. Jeffrey
Evaluated was the effectiveness of daily 10-minute sessions in a structured language training program (Teaching the American Language to Kids) with 72 moderately retarded students ages 5- to 13-years. Lee's Developmental Sentence Scoring of free speech samples was used as the pre- and posttest. Gain scores of 17 experimental Ss (students who had met the test's minimum sentence production requirement) were significantly higher than scores of 12 control subjects, and comparison of pre- and posttest measures within the experimental group also indicated a significant gain.
