EXTENDING CLINIC RESOURCES--A REMEDIAL THERAPY PROGRAM IN A SCHOOL.
POLLACK, CECELIA; SHER, NORMAN
TO PREVENT OR AMELIORATE LEARNING AND BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL CHILDREN, A PILOT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS IMPLEMENTED IN A LOWER MIDDLE CLASS, MULTI-ETHNIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK BY THE MAIMONIDES MEDICAL CENTER. PRACTICABILITY OF PROGRAM REPLICATION WAS AN IMPORTANT CRITERION. AN INSERVICE MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED FOR THE FACULTY UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF A CLINIC PSYCHOLOGIST. THE PROGRAM WAS TEACHER-CHILD ORIENTED AND DEALT WITH DEVELOPMENTAL PROBLEMS, FAMILY STRESS, AND GROUP DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES. TO TEST SPECIAL TECHNIQUES FOR EARLY INTERVENTION, EIGHT CHILDREN IDENTIFIED AS NON-READERS PARTICIPATED IN A DEMONSTRATION STUDY. TO REMEDIATE THEIR PROBLEMS, THE POLLACK INTERSENSORY READING METHOD, PROGRAMS OF PERCEPTUAL TRAINING, AND BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION PROCEDURES THROUGH CLASSROOM CONDITIONING WERE USED. PARENTS WERE CONSULTED WEEKLY. THE METHOD SEEMS SUCCESSFUL AND MAY SERVE TO PREVENT OR MINIMIZE EDUCATIONAL DISABILITY AND SCHOOL BEHAVIORAL DIFFICULTY. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE AMERICAN ORTHOPSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION, MARCH 21, 1967. (PS)
