Rogow, Sally M.
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v8 n2 p176-82 1992
This article reflects on the use of stories as learning tools for children unable to speak and shows how stories provide a medium for imagination and playfulness. Language has the power to liberate and enhance the lives of children limited in their physical independence. Stories can aid such children in being understood and in developing language skills. (DB)
