A Parent Training Program for Language Impaired Children.
A parent training program used at the Humboldt State University Speech and Hearing Center helps parents of language impaired children learn to incorporate language facilitation techniques into their daily interaction with their children. The approach used is the INREAL model which was designed to improve the language and related learning skills of 3- to 5-year-old children in a naturalistic, non-stigmatizing way. Techniques used include mirroring, self-talk, parallel talk, verbal monitoring and reflecting, expansion, and modeling. Training features videotapes and audiotapes and clinician-parent feedback. The training program sequence for assessment and planning is outlined and eight phases of the training program procedures are briefly described. (CL)
