Forty second-grade children with functional articulatory speech problems who had normal hearing and intelligence were divided equally and randomly into experimental and control groups. Of those originally identified, 50% were still available for evaluation at the end of the school year. Recorded speech samples were obtained at the beginning and end of the experimental period; observers were trained and asked to judge the severity of the articulatory problem. The results suggest that where parents are randomly selected and caused to participate, there is no real effect upon the progress shown during therapy. Comments on procedures for conducting studies in public schools are included.
