Abstract:

The purpose of this book is to survey the impact of psycholinguistic concepts on educational practice. In actual practice, the educator's approach to psycholinguistics is based upon three assumptions: 1) that psycholinguistic constructs are measurable by available tests and therefore their evaluation can lead to differential diagnosis of an individual's psycholinguistic strengths and weaknesses; 2) that psycholinguistic constructs, as measured, are related directly to school failure, i.e., such deficits cause or contribute to academic difficulties, rather than merely predict them; and 3) that once identified, the specific psycholinguistic problems are remediable by programs or techniques which are readily available. Each chapter in this book deals with one of those assumptions.
