A Case Study: A Guide to Working with a Language Impaired Child.
Sapir, Selma G.; Rainho, Sergio
The document presents the case study of the interaction of a graduate student in traning, her supervisor, an 8 year old child with a language learning problem, and the child's mother. It involves a process which entails the careful matching of the child to tutor, the tutor to supervisor, and intensive work with the mother. It also is based on what is called clinical teaching which considers all characteristics of the child and provides an integrated treatment plan for social, emotional, and cognitive growth. Fundamental changes in the total functioning of the child (social, emotional, cognitive, and academic) are seen as evident in the interviews with the mother, tutor, supervisor, and teacher. Posttest battery scores are cited as confirming the qualitative data. Among appendixes are a conference report, samples of the child's drawings and handwriting, and an evaluation of the child by his mother. (SBH)
