Does It Matter What Your Client Thinks? The Role of Theory in Intervention: Response to Kamhi.
Hewitt, Lynne E.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v31 n2 p186-93 Apr 2000
This response to Kamhi (EC 625 122) who suggested some children distinguish between speech therapy activities and meaningful communication, argues that, since discrepancies between a clinician's and a client's view of clinical interactions may complicate intervention, the clinician should make his viewpoint explicit. Three theories of intervention are discussed: social interactionist, behaviorist, and information processing. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
