The Impact of a Day School Program on the Language Development of Autistic Children.
Mueller, E. Jane; Romeo, Dominic
Described is a program for autistic children, and presented are educational case studies of 13 children (6-9 years old). The program is explained to provide individualized instruction based on assessment using the Peabody Individual Achievement Test, B. Ruttenberg and E. Wolf's Vocalization and Expressive Speech Development Scale, L. Lee's developmental Sentence Analysis and Scoring, and Ruttenberg and Wolf's scale for Determining the Nature and Degree of Relationship to an Adult as a Person. Case studies provide information on child progress in language, academic, socialization, and body management skills. It is noted that strategies emphasizing manipulative materials and action-response tasks for nonverbal children appeared more effective in developing language and social learning than reading and writing activities.
