Learning Disabilities In-Service Training Kit.
Included in the training kit for teachers in the area of learning disabilities are materials developed by Project Lighthouse for experimental field usage to test the materials. The problem of educating children with learning disabilities is summarized, as is Piaget's model of logical activity. The major divisions of the text then deal with the areas of standardized texts (behavior rating scales, patterning, perceptual motor skills, gross motor activities); the development of language (analyses of language, reading, and spelling abilities, tutoring procedures, psychoeducational diagnosis, and a concurrent reading program); and logical training, reading, and spelling (rhythm, music therapy, mathematical reasoning). The last section also contains some teacher designed materials and techniques: bead game, crossword puzzle placement, and logical training exercises. Each section contains a bibliography. (KW)
