Articulation Disorders: A Guide to Program Administration and Case Management for Speech Clinicians in Public Schools.
Ginn, Mary E.
Intended to assist speech clinicians in the public schools, the guide provides information on establishing accountability for services to children with articulation disorders. Described are procedures involved in initial screening (such as teacher referral and rapid screening), assessment (including audiometric screening and oral peripheral examination), interpretation of test results (based on such factors as number and type of error), and case selection, scheduling, and dismissal of children with articulation disorders. Among the accountability practices advocated are formulating goals and objectives and using contingency management. Reviewed are five approaches to articulation therapy, including the sensory motor and programed articulation approach. Proposed in the final section is a practical model for program administration and case management. Among four appendixes are lists of articulation screening tests and tests for assessing articulatory proficiency. (CL)
