Communication and Language Intervention: Why a Constructivist Approach Is Insufficient.
Warren, Steve F.; Yoder, Paul J.
Journal of Special Education, v28 n3 p248-58 Fall 1994
This paper discusses the historical context of communication and language intervention and critiques three widely used interventions. It advocates a cross-paradigmatic approach because its inherent flexibility fits with what is known about language acquisition, the nature of different intervention approaches, and human development. This approach can encompass behavioral approaches, constructivist approaches, and eclectic approaches. (JDD)
