Understanding Perceptual Differences; An Exploration of Neurological-Perceptual Roots of Learning Disabilities with Suggestions for Diagnosis and Treatment.
Monroe, George E.
In exploring the bases of learning disabilities, the following areas are considered: a working definition of perceptual handicaps; the relationship of perceptual handicaps to IQ; diagnosing perceptual handicaps; effective learning experiences for the perceptually handicapped child; and recommendations for developing new curricula. The appendixes list characteristic behavioral symptoms, preliminary "signs and symptoms" categories; steps in adequate diagnosis, six types of intraclass grouping, commercial sources for perceptual development materials, teacher developed concepts for devising materials, and associations for the help of children with learning disabilities. The bibliography lists 100 items. (MM)
