Abstract

As we have indicated, the bulk of language development has occurred over the previous school years. However, not all high school students are equally prepared to take on the thinking and learning that is required during these years. Long before the high school years the problems in language development that particular children have should have been identified and appropriate interventions to help should have taken place. As pointed out in the previous chapter this is not always the case. Intervention does not always help all of these students. Further, students with hearing difficulties that are subtle and those who seem to be coping with learning problems might not have been found during the earlier years. Teachers whose training has made them sensitive to these possibilities might prevent these from being discovered so late.
