Discourse-based Intervention for Word Finding in Children.
Stiegler, Lillian N.; Hoffman, Paul R.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v34 n4 p277-303 Jul-Aug 2001
A discourse-based, contextual intervention approach for increasing children's word finding proficiency was evaluated. Subjects were three 9-year-olds with language-learning disabilities. Intervention involved picture-elicited narratives, story-retelling, and conversation on family topics. All three subjects exhibited a decrease in the average number of problematic word finding behaviors after the discourse-based intervention. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
