The Speech Defective School Child: What Our Schools Are Doing for Him. Bulletin, 1931, No. 7
Rogers, James Frederick
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
A very large number of school children have defects of speech. Their defects may prove a very serious handicap if not a source of misery during the period of their schooling and later in life. Their conditions can, in a large measure, be cured or improved by proper speech instruction. The number helped will depend, however, not only on the character of the special instruction but on the cooperation of school officials, teachers, and parents. While much is being done for them in larger cities and communities, practically no attention is paid elsewhere. Herein, the author recounts his experience and study of the methods and practices being used to teach a speech defective child. Further, he offers solutions on what more can be done. Records and other forms are appended. A bibliography is provided. Contains 10 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
