Oral Language Disorders Program. Language Is a Group Experience.
Davidson, Joel; And Others
The paper describes the Oral Language Disorders Classroom (OLDC), an approach providing intensive speech and language therapy and academic support to students with severe communication disorders in a primary classroom setting. The OLDC emphasizes preparation for quick return to the regular classroom. General school curriculum is modified and supplementary materials are designed to stress success in academics. The curriculum is organized around six units: self, family, school, community, plants, and animals. Program evaluation data are discussed, including changes in articulation and functional language communication skills, and in discrepancy between chronological age and language age. (CL)
