Title I ESEA Program-Remedial Services for Eligible Non-Public School Pupils Speech Therapy Component.
Southworth, William Dixon
This report is an evaluation of a New York City school district educational project funded under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Approximately 4,812 elementary and secondary non-public school children, drawn from four New York City boroughs and enrolled in the ESEA Reading, Mathematics, and English as a Second Language Program participated in the speech improvement program. The program was staffed by a coordinator, field supervisor, teacher trainer, and qualified speech teachers. Noted educators in speech, language, and education disabilities also participated in the program. The objective of the program evaluation was to determine by standardized testing and teacher judgment whether the severity and number of speech and language deficits had been significantly reduced. Except in kindergarten, eleventh, and twelfth grades where sample sizes were too small, statistically significant differences between pre and posttest scores were found, indicating that the speech and language deficits of the participants were reduced significantly.
