Assessment and Remediation of Oral Language. Academic Assessment and Remediation of Adults with Learning Disabilities: A Resource Series for Adult Basic Education Teachers.
Hoy, Cheri A.; Gregg, K. Noel
The third of seven booklets on adults with learning disabilities, this manual addresses the evaluation and remediation of oral language difficulties. An assessment section focuses on behaviors and disorders which adult education teachers should look for as well as informal diagnostic tasks in auditory discrimination, grammar, vocabulary, social use of language, and oral language recall. The remediation section parallels the assessment information section, presenting suggestions for remediating problems in auditory discrimination, grammar, vocabulary and underlying meaning, word finding, semantics, social language skills, and oral language recall. It is pointed out that few commercial materials exist for oral language instruction of the learning disabled; however, five references are listed and these are followed by a longer bibliography which includes descriptions of materials and techniques and which offer useful ideas that may be adopted according to the needs of each student.
