Special Education for Normal Kindergarten Children with Subtle Developmental Learning Delays.
Weiner, Lawrence H.
Kindergarten age children were screened at pre-registration through extensive diagnostic procedures for placement in a class designed for normal children with developmental delays staffed by a Special Education teacher and language therapist. Instruction was prescriptive and individualized. Of the twelve children who were high risk failures at the onset, eight improved to low risk failures at the conclusion with statistical significance. It was concluded that Special Education is valuable for non-handicapped children with developmental learning problems. (Author)
