The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of a Home Language Program on the oral expressive skills of educable mentally retarded (EMR) children attending special classes at the primary level. It sought to answer the following questions: 1. Will there be a statistically significant increase in the verbal fluency of educable mentally retarded children in terms of an increase in vocabulary, number of concepts expressed, and mean length of response (MLR) as a result of a Home Language Program? 2. Will there be a statistically significant increase in the total verbal output of educable mentally retarded children (EMR) as a result of a Home Language Program?
