This paper presents one schizophrenic child’s progress in a two-year communication therapy program based on auditory monitoring and feedback. The goal of such a program is to open the auditory channel to promote the development of awareness in the child of his own communication errors and to develop the awareness of his auditory environment requisite to cognitive and linguistic development. Developments in his auditory monitoring behavior are traced through his changing responses to specific therapy tasks, through the modification of particular language errors, including tangentiality, and through the changes observed in his auditory awareness and accessibility, in and outside therapy.
