Focus on Children with Underdeveloped Skills: End of Budget Year Report.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
Serving prekindergarten through grade 5, the project was designed to improve the educational performance of children with learning problems (without regard to categorical labels) and thus support the work of the classroom teacher in the child's normal school setting. Team screening processes were developed to identify preschool or school age children with learning problems; assessment, intervention, and followup procedures were also developed, involving teaching teams and resource staff. In addition, continuing staff development and training procedures were provided for project personnel; the project was coordinated and integrated with the school system and the community; a record system was designed as a model for information collection, storage, and retrieval; and project evaluation procedures were developed and applied in terms of outcomes for individual children and for the school system. Appendixes, comprising over half of the document, provide forms and other project material. (Author/JD)
