Interactive Language Development Teaching: The Clinical Presentation of Grammatical Structure.
Lee, Laura L.; And Others
This book presents a clinical procedure for presenting grammatical structure to children with language learning problems. The procedure is based on the developmental aspects of normal language learning and the natural, conversational setting in which children generally learn grammatical structure. Section 1 discusses the interactive language development teaching procedure, giving background information and rationale for its use. Section 2 presents 30 stories for children at a beginning level of syntactic development and 32 stories for children at a more advanced stage. And section 3 discusses the results of a three year study at the Northwestern University Speech and Language Clinic and evaluates the effectiveness of this method with a large population of clinical children. The bulk of the book is devoted to illustrative lessons and consists of brief narrative passages, target responses to the passages, and each response's score according to the Developmental Sentence Scoring Procedure.
