One of the most significant developments in the American Educational System has been the extension of instructional services to Exceptional Children. The term “exceptional children” has come to be applied to children who need special services because of physical, intellectual or personal-social differences from other children. In no other aspect has this development meant so much as it has in rendering educational assistance to the children with speech defects. Educators have long realized the importance of speech in the conduction of everyday life, but until recent years speech therapy had shown little progress.
