Dual Perspectives on Theory in Clinical Practice: Practice Makes Perfect: The Incompatibility of Practicing Speech and Meaningful Communication.
Kamhi, Alan G.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v31 n2 p182-85 Apr 2000
This article uses a case study to suggest that some children view speech-language therapy as a separate situation for learning practicing new sounds and language forms whereas the purpose of talking outside of therapy is meaningful communication. Clinical implications of this potential incompatibility between practicing speech and communicating effectively are drawn. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
