Rural Special Education Quarterly, v35 n1 p3-12 Mar 2016
Language intervention using Direct Instruction (DI) has shown positive results. There is a growing body of investigation of Language for Learning (LL), a DI program, on the performance of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and students with developmental delays (DD). There is need for replication and extension of research to include rural settings and students with ASD and DD. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of LL on the language of students with DD and ASD in a rural preschool classroom. Four preschool students with DD and ASD participated in 12 weeks of instruction, resulting in improved language skills.
