AbstractThis thesis is concerned with teaching severely and profoundly retarded persons to begin to use expressive language in some form. A review of the literature on normal language acquisition and on the relevance of normal data to the retarded population leads to the construction of guidelines for content and methodology in language curriculum materials. -- Based upon these guidelines, six books or manuals and one curriculum kit are examined under the following headings: format and contents, structure and flexibility, recognition of the cognitive and social bases of language acquisition, approach to child language, generalization components, and intended population, both students and teachers. Two of the items examined are rejected, three are found to be of some merit, and two items are highly recommended as curriculum materials consistent with the principles of effective language intervention.
