Language Development Activities through the Auditory Channel.
Fitzmaurice, Peggy, Comp.; And Others
Presented primarily for use with educable mentally retarded and learning disabled children are approximately 100 activities for language development through the auditory channel. Activities are grouped under the following three areas: receptive skills (auditory decoding, auditory memory, and auditory discrimination); expressive skills (auditory vocal association, auditory visual association, auditory closure, and sound blending techniques); and speech improvement. Each entry begins with a statement of the activity's purpose, followed by a list of materials needed (when applicable) and a description of the procedures involved. Sample activities suggested include a game in which children repeat patterns of drum beats (to develop auditory memory), an exercise in which they describe hidden objects to each other (to strengthen use of complete sentences), and a series of poems (to improve speech).
