Compensatory Education Programs; Activities in Nevada, 1969. ESEA Title I.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.
This report is comprised of a series of descriptions of compensatory education programs. Programs included provision of: health information, health examinations and follow-up treatment, individualized counseling, bilingual education, and remedial instruction. Special help programs for migrant, orphaned, emotionally disturbed, rural, and reservation Indian children, programs aimed at improving verbal and academic skills, and programs providing individualized instruction along with health services and nutritional services are described. Because the target population comprised many children from isolated areas with negative attitudes toward school, behavior modification techniques were incorporated into many programs to help students adjust to the classroom situation. A heightened sense of self-esteem and increased potential were also emphasized throughout these programs. (KG)
