Thirty Years before Topics in Language Disorders: A Personal History
Stark, Joel
Topics in Language Disorders, v30 n1 p15-21 Jan-Mar 2010
In the 1950s, the assessment and management of children with language impairments emphasized their auditory and visual processing deficits and relied heavily on classifications of adult language disorders. Many compelling theoretical insights were offered, but research in language acquisition was in its infancy. It was not until the 1960s and 1970s that the involvement of speech-language pathologists with language acquisition and language-based learning disorders in children gradually evolved.
