Language Intervention. A Sampling of Selected Programs for Severe, Moderate, and Mild Impairments--1969-1975.
Eleven selected language programs made available between 1967 and 1975 are described. The introduction explores the theoretical perspectives at work during the past 15 years and discusses the factors which should influence language program choice, how children acquire language skills, and techniques for evaluating the success of language intervention. The booklet is divided into programs for mild handicaps (including the Peabody Language Development Program), moderate handicaps (including the Distar Language Program), and severe handicaps (including Systematic Language Instruction: the Illinois Program), with accompanying explanations regarding the nature of language impairements in each of these groups.
