Final Report of the Evaluation of the 1970-71 Clinical and Guidance Services in the Non-Public Schools. ESEA Title I.
This program was a recycling of the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I Clinical-Guidance Program for pupils in designated non-public schools, for 1966-70. The project supplied the consulting and clinical services of psychologists, social workers, and guidance counselors for the staff, pupils, and parents of pupils in designated non-public schools in the New York City area. Among the objectives of the project were: (a) to identify through the skills of the various disciplines those children in need of specialized services; (b) to differentiate the needs of the individual pupils; (c) to treat the underlying causes of pupil maladjustment so as to create an atmosphere conducive to learning; (d) to identify pupils in need of remediation and secure proper treatment in the areas of speech, reading, mathematics, or language handicaps; (e) to diagnose specific problems such as brain impairment or other conditions requiring special class placement and to arrange for such placement; and, (f) to identify and refer for treatment to appropriate community resources and social agencies where problems so indicate. In order to evaluate the degree to which these objectives were met, site visits were made to a random sample of 15 schools served by the project. (Author/JM)
