SPECIFIC VALUES OF A RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM FOR THE LEARNING DISABLED ADOLESCENT.
ROSS, SAMUEL B.
SOME OF THE VALUES OF A RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM FOR THE DISABLED LEARNER INCLUDE A PREDICTABLE DAILY ROUTINE, PERSONAL ATTENTION, THE IMPERSONAL ATTITUDE OF THE STAFF, ORDER, AN ENCOURAGING ATMOSPHERE, A RIGOROUS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, AND CONCENTRATION ON SELF-CONCEPTS. ALTHOUGH THE BOARDING SCHOOL IS NO PANACEA FOR ALL THE PROBLEMS OF THE CHILD, FOR MANY IT IS THE ONLY ANSWER. THE COMBINATION OF A SOUND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WITH AN AFTER-SCHOOL LIVING EXPERIENCE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CHILD'S SUCCESS OR FAILURE. THE MOST CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE RESIDENTIAL PLACEMENT OF THE ADOLESCENT IS THAT WITHIN THIS SITUATION THE CHILD IS AS HE IS AND IS GIVEN GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT TO ACCEPT HIMSELF. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE 5TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR CHILDREN WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES (BOSTON, FEBRUARY 1968). (AUTHOR/BK)
