A presentation of ideas on the ideal context for language therapy for children, this paper explores in detail the importance of teaching child language, centering language therapy in the present, teaching words with empirical significance to the child, attempting to provide a language context which is generative to unassisted later language learning, and, finally, teaching communication, not merely language skills. In addition a sample core lexicon is presented which was designed to relate the above contextual aspects of therapy to psycholinguistic strategies of language therapy.
