Portland Public Schools, OR.
A program designed to detect and prevent reading disability in kindergarten is outlined in this curriculum guide. A modification of the Santa Clara Inventory of Developmental Tasks is used as the basic screening and diagnostic instrument, and instructions are provided on how to use the instrument for both purposes. Detailed sections on teacher training, implementation, parent involvement, and evaluation of student progress are included. Reading readiness areas covered are language development, visual and auditory perception, concept development, and motor coordination. The appendixes include information on budget, tests and inventories, format for volunteer training sessions, supplemental programs for children continuing at risk, suggested materials and supplies, project-developed prescriptive activities, and suggestions on how to deal with specific learning handicaps.
