Teaching Language-Deviant Children to Generalize Newly Taught Language: A Socio-Ecological Approach. Volume II. Final Report.
Schiefelbusch, R. L.; Rogers-Warren, Ann
The second volume of a final report on language generalization of severely and moderately retarded and mildly language delayed children is composed of eight appendixes. Introductory information lists project dissemination activities, including published articles and presented papers. Appendix 1 details the two language training programs used in the study (EC 130 861): a functional speech and language approach for severely handicapped persons (Guess, Sailor, and Baer) and a behavioral-psycholinguistic approach (Stremel and Waryas). Observation codes, computer programs, and assessment tests are described in separate appendixes. The bulk of the document is composed of complexity and rate data graphs of individual Ss from the generalization study. Abstracts of ecological studies (including research on increasing language usage during mealtimes); environmental studies (such as research on generalization and maintenance of question asking behavior by severely retarded children); and environmental intervention studies (including papers on teacher-verbal interactions, student activity level and inappropriateness, and environments of language delayed children) complete the volume.
