A READING READINESS TRAINING PROGRAM FOR PERCEPTUALLY HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTEN PUPILS OF NORMAL VISION. FINAL REPORT.
MEYERSON, DANIEL W.
BASED ON THE HYPOTHESIS THAT KEPHART PERCEPTUAL TRAINING WOULD SHARPEN VISUAL PERCEPTION IN PERCEPTUALLY HANDICAPPED KINDERGARTENERS, THIS PROGRAM STUDIED 58 SUCH CHILDREN ACCORDING TO THREE CATEGORIES (1) THE FROSTIG DEVELOPMENTAL TEST OF VISUAL PERCEPTION, (2) SOCIO ECONOMIC STATUS, AND (3) VISUAL ACUITY (KEENNESS). THE CHILDREN WERE DIVIDED INTO TWO GROUPS (1) KEPHART-TRAINED, 15 MINUTES PER DAY AND (2) NO SPECIAL TRAINING. AT THE END OF 8 WEEKS, GINN PRE-READING AND LEE-CLARK READING READINESS TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED. THE 3 CATEGORIES WERE EXAMINED BY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. RESULTS SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AS THE RESULT OF KEPHART TRAINING. THE CHILDREN OF HIGH SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS WERE BETTER PREPARED FOR READING, REGARDLESS OF TRAINING OR VISUAL ADEQUACY. SOCIO-ECONOMIC FACTORS NOT CONTROLLED FOR IN THIS STUDY MAY AFFECT READING READINESS MORE THAN DO EITHER KEPHART TRAINING OR VISUAL ACUITY. (LG)
