PILOT STUDY ON READING PROBLEMS DUE TO VISUAL DISABILITY.
YVONNE, SISTER M.
A STUDY ON THE USE OF THE OCULARMOTOR TRAINER (O.T.) TO IMPROVE READING ACHIEVEMENT, BY LESSENING READING DISABILITY IN LEFT-TO-RIGHT DIRECTION AND RETURN SWEEP, WAS REPORTED. MATCHED PAIRS WERE ESTABLISHED OF 20 PUPILS WHO WERE RANDOMLY SELECTED FOR EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUP ASSIGNMENT. THEY RECEIVED READING THERAPY FOR 15 WEEKS. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVED AN ADDITIONAL 10-MINUTE PERIOD OF OCULARMOTOR TRAINING DURING EACH SESSION. PRE- AND POST-TEST PROCEDURES WERE ADMINISTERED FOR ORAL AND SILENT READING ON EQUIVALENT FORMS OF THE READING TESTS. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT TRAINING ON AN O.T. RESULTED IN GREATER READING ACHIEVEMENT THAN BY CONVENTIONAL PROCEDURES. SINCE THIS PILOT STUDY WAS LIMITED, IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT THE STUDY BE REPEATED ON A LARGER SAMPLE AND FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME. (RS)
