TranscriptBlack community receives speech
and hearing services from SIU
More than 150 residents
jf Carbondalc's black community have received remedial speech and bearing
services in a language development project begun last
rail by SIU Department of
Speech Pathology and Audl-
& logy.
The recipients are mostly children, but the group
ranges in age all the way
from 2 to 81 years.
The project center is
located in the community room
of the Jackson County Housing Authority on North Marlon
Street. Ten SIU students in
speech pathology, supervised
by three graduate assistants,
meet with the participants
three times each week to provide the services.
Mrs* Sue Ann Pace, SIU
speech correction specialist
and director of the program,
explained that the purpose Is
limply to help people-
especially youngsters—w h o
have difficulty expressing
themselves.
"We are not Interested in
changing the way they say
things, she said. "There
is no attempt to change dialectical patterns or speech
habits which are characteristic of black people. We
only try to stimulate communication and vocabulary
growth."
Children whose speech difficulties are found to stem
from organic causes are given
therapy at the project center.
Adults with hearing problems
are referred to SIU's Clinical
Services Center on campus.
Once each month a parent
group program ie held at the
Housing Authority to keep the
parents informed on what Is
taking place, to train the
parents to assist at home
with the children's language
development, and to learn
from the parents how they want
the program operated.
