The Analysis of Brain Function--A New Approach to the Assessment of Children with Learning Disorders.
A clinical psychologist describes an approach she uses to assess learning disabled students. She explains that brain function is analyzed through a sequence of tasks charting visual and auditory discrimination, perception, memory, organization, integration, and output. An example is cited in which an 11 year old child with traumatic brain injury was found to have severe visual organization and integration difficulties, and was placed in a program stressing tactile and auditory input channels to teach reading, spelling, and arithmetic. A 16 year old with an auditory learning disability is said to have blossomed through the use of correspondence and taped lessons and tutoring. (CL)
