130 p. 

The manual provides a description of a program to encourage minority undergraduate students to major in communication disorders through paid participation in the delivery of speech and hearing diagnosis and therapy services to underserved segments of a California community. The eight bilingual or bicultural trainees worked two half days a week under the guidance of a graduate student in communicative disorders and participated in a weekly instructional session. Activities of the project included preschool screening of 1,054 children, diagnostic evaluation of 97 persons, and provision of therapy for a total of 55 child or adult clients. Summarized are lectures given trainees on topics such as speech pathology, opportunities in the department and profession, acquisition of language and related skills, bilingual/bicultural children, stuttering, cleft palate, cerebral palsy, aphasia, autism, assessment of speech and language disorders, and therapy. Briefly described are guest lectures on subjects such as congenital birth defects and Spanish/English speech variations. It is reported that six of the trainees requested admission into the communications disorders department. Appended is additional project information including a diagnostic information packet, information for clinicians, samples of a diagnostic report, and the Department of Communicative Disorders brochure.
