Traditionally, speech-language intervention has been offered to language-impaired children in a treatment room apart from the classroom, and separate from the activities and curricula that the child encounters within the school environment. This article describes a language-to-reading intervention method, termed Communicative Reading Strategies, that can be effectively used to provide language intervention within the context of the child's classroom reading group. A passage from children's literature contained within a reading textbook is used to exemplify the types of language difficulties encountered in the classroom, followed by a transcript modeling principles that can be used to assist children in learning how to deal with the complexities of contextual language. Techniques such as CRS are advantageous because they enable language intervention to be provided within the classroom, resulting in benefits to the child, the classroom teacher, and the speech-language pathologist.
