Steps to Achievement for the Slow Learner. The Slow Learner Series.
Ebersole, Marylou; And Others
Intended for teachers, therapists, physicians, students, and parents, the guide presents a learning theory based on motor activities and suggests a curriculum for preschoolers divided into systematic learning steps which are necessary for attaining educational goals. Topics treated are special needs of the child handicapped by brain damage, characteristics and discipline, brain damage related to the function of the nervous system, learning theory related to teaching techniques, the need for a stable point of reference from which to interpret relations in space, and the developmental stages of learning. Also considered and detailed by steps are conceptualization, arm and hand coordination, cutting with scissors, pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-arithmetic (counting and number concepts). Three appendixes contain activities for teaching colors and pattern analysis and development with form boards, and steps in teaching pre-arithmetic. (DF)
