Identifying and Remediating the Developmental Delays of Kindergarten At Risk Students through an Extended Day Program.
Weber, Kathleen M.
A program was developed for six kindergarten students identified as at risk because of developmental delays. The program involved an hour of instruction after the regular school day, 2 days a weeks for a 10-week period, with a curriculum focusing on visual, auditory, and motor development. Specific skill areas included visual motor coordination, auditory discrimination, gross motor coordination, perceptual constancy, auditory memory, laterality-directionality, visual discrimination, ocular-motor coordination, position in space, auditory sequence, visual sequence, and fine motor coordination. A pre/post-test indicated the effectiveness of the program. A survey of parents also resulted in positive feedback concerning the program. Appendices contain a teacher observation form, a letter to parents, and a parent evaluation form. (10 references) (JDD)
