Mobile Reading Centers, Dade County, Florida. Program Conspectus.
Center for Urban Education, New York, NY. Program Reference Service.
This bulletin describes Mobile Reading Centers which serve students with reading disabilities in grades 3 through 6 in Dade County, Florida schools. The centers consist of 5 buses which were formerly staffed by 3 remedial reading specialists (1965-1968) but, due to cutback in funds, are presently staffed with one specialist (1968-1969). The mobile units serve 10 schools a year and provide one half-hour of instruction daily to each student. Both informal and standardized data attest to the fact that the students' reading skills have improved. In addition, attendance, attitudes, study habits, and classroom participation have enhanced academic progress. (KG)
