Westby, Carol E.; Costlow, Linda
Topics in Language Disorders, v11 n3 p69-84 May 1991
A program for language learning-disabled students is described that uses a whole language philosophy to structure contexts that develop students' pragmatic, semantic, syntactic, graphophonemic, and metacognitive abilities underlying speaking, listening, reading, and writing. This paper describes the program environment, children, thematic contexts, contexts for literacy, and parent involvement. (JDD)
