Abstract

The purpose of this project was to measure and compare the language concept growth of two clients who utilized different response modes; client A utilized the expressive mode and client B utilized the receptive mode. A systematic management program was administered to each client for eighteen sessions. The specific questions posed were: 1. Did both clients demonstrate the ability to verbalize concepts on the post-test of the individualized programs? 2. Did client A learn more concepts in eighteen sessions than client B as measured by the post-tests of the individualized programs and the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts? 3. Did both clients tend to learn each concept in a similar number of trials?
