Zeigler, Carmen S., Comp.; And Others
Designed by the Bloomfield Hills (Michigan) multidisciplinary evaluation team, the document suggests procedures and enabling activities to implement the assessment and identification of learning disabled students. Individual sections address five areas (ability, achievement, severe discrepancy, exclusionary clause, and need for special education services) in terms of definitions, discussion, and suggested procedures/ measures for assessment. Following a bibliography (with references on ability, adaptive behavior scales, and achievement) are appended materials which include Michigan special education rules for learning disability, inter/intra test analysis, definitions, standard score conversions, examples of the formula for determing the severe discrepancy level, a general education intervention form, a multidisciplinary evaluation team summary report, and a summary of implementation procedures.
