This manual for administering, scoring, and interpreting the Individual Learning Disabilities Screening Instrument is introduced with the definition, prevalence, and etiology of learning disabilities. Next, a sample of the Individual Learning Disabilities Classroom Screening Instrument (ILDCSI) is provided. The administration and scoring of the ILDCSI are explained, and brief descriptions and interpretations of each of the eight individual learning disability categories described on the ILDCSI Scoring Form are given. An annotated list of tests and procedures most frequently used in the diagnosis of an individual learning disability is included, the items appearing under the following categories: intelligence, perceptual, neurological evaluation; pediatric evaluation; academic achievement and diagnostic tests; diagnostic language and concept formation tests; readiness and screening tests; and social competence test. Suggested activities, teaching methods, and preventive techniques are provided as aids for the teacher in applying remedial techniques. Included in these activities are those presented in the Facilitator's Handbook II, Episodes and Program Implementation for S.O.L.--System for Open Learning. An index is provided of the episodes and their subgroups or units. References and a selected bibliography are provided. (DB)
