Programming Learning Disabilities.
Valett, Robert E.
Written primarily for use by persons concerned with the establishment and operation of learning disability programs the text presents a rationale for programing, definitions, examples, and educational rationales for basic learning abilities, and a model school district policy statement. Preliminary screening, psychological evaluation, a developmental task approach to education, the diagnostic-prescriptive teacher, and the development of sensory-motor and perceptual skills are discussed. Suggestions are made for prescriptive programing and program organization; the rationale and methods for behavior modification and supporting programs and services are considered. Sample letters, forms, and records, behavior rating scales, evaluation sheets, schedules, lists of equipment and supplies, and lesson plans are provided. (RJ)
