Professionalism and Institutionalization of Education of Speech and Language Impaired Children in an Inclusive System in Germany
Mussmann, Jorg
International Journal of Special Education, v26 n2 p108-119 2011
This paper discusses the future of professionalism of the traditional exclusive and curative pedagogy for speech and language impaired children in Germany. This specialized professional domain is currently being challenged to define as a specialized educational domain of education and educational science their resources with a justifiable educational theory for the inclusive restructuring of the school system. Therefore this domain brings a variety of terminology for concepts and methods that manage to combine education and curriculum-based speech and language therapy in the classroom. In its actual redefinition it moves between linguistic provincialism and professional self-dissolution. But educational and institutional resources with evidence-based educational methods show, however useful perspectives in an inclusive system, if the subsidiarity principle would be followed Not a complete sentence. A network-based organization for these resources and methods is one way. The restructuring of the special schools for pupils without speech and language disabilities is another way.
