A Study on the Language Intervention by Cognitive-Pragmatic Approach (II).
Nagasaki, Tsutomu; And Others
RIEEC Report, v36 p45-56 1987
Three 5-year-old Japanese children with no meaningful words were the subjects of an intervention program. The subjects and therapists played the "shopping game" (in the first term) and the "riding car game" (in the second term) with rules within the subjects' cognitive ability and in a setting designed to facilitate communication with others. Subjects' responses in the games were assessed by checklists which evaluated cognitive level of student responses . Communication levels were assessed by the length of the "communication unit" and the frequency of functional communication acts. Results indicated that for the "shopping game," subjects' cognitive skills improved and number of responsive interactions increased over time; for the "riding car game," subjects' interactions were fewer than for the other game (possibly due to higher cognitive demands) but also improved over time in both cognitive level and number.
