Students Who Can't Communicate: Speech Language Services at the Secondary Level.
McKinley, Nancy L.; Larson, Vicki Lord
Curriculum Report, v19 n2 Nov 1989
This pamphlet maintains that schools must address the needs (typically underserved or unserved in the schools) of students with oral communication disorders. The pamphlet states that such disorders range from language comprehension and/or production deficits to social communication problems, to low-level thinking skills, to hearing problems, to speech problems such as stuttering or articulation errors. The pamphlet's six sections are as follows: (1) Why Speech Language Services Are Critical; (2) Identifying Students with Communication Disorders; (3) How To Structure Effective Speech-Language Programs (discussing information dissemination, identification, assessment, program planning, intervention, and follow-up); (4) Exempli Gratia (containing descriptions of five speech-language programs based on the above model); (5) Summary; and (6) Resources.
