Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Warner, Katrina S., M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 74; 1568905
Abstract (Summary)

Children with language impairments frequently benefit from language intervention which utilizes children's books. However, careful selection of the children's books by interventionists must be done, as these children are frequently delayed in narrative abilities. This research investigates the narrative level of children's books used in language intervention with three methodologies of narrative analysis. Results indicate that children's books have narratives that span across developmental levels; revealing that not all books are appropriate for all children in narrative terms. Clinical implications are discussed.
