Working Papers in Experimental Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
Jablon, Ann, Ed.; And Others
Five papers describe clinical research completed by graduate students in speech-language pathology and audiology. The first study examines the linguistic input of three adults (a mother, teacher, and clinician) to a language impaired 8-year-old. The clinician's approach, less directive than that of the other two, facilitated spontaneous speech and increased the child's verbal responses. Study 2 demonstrated that a 10-year-old with Down's Syndrome could learn metalinguistic skills (the ability to think about and reflect on language) in a clinical setting. The third study investigated the relationship between an audiological test battery and self-assessment of 36 hearing impaired adults (50-70 years old). In the fourth study, the echolalic behavior of a 10-year-old emotionally disturbed child was analyzed over a 3-month period. The final study reports on an investigation of communicative abilities of eight adults with aphasia. (CL)
