The Design of Early Developmental Learning Programs for Disadvantaged Young Children. ERIC-IRCD Bulletin (Supplement), Volume III, Number 1A.
Proposed is a model for basic preconditions for "the design of effective programs in developmental learning." Such a program should include (1) a continuous psychocognitive diagnosis and assessment of each child; (2) a structured, coherent, sequential approach to content area; (3) a focus on symbolic manipulation and the essentials of a concept; and (4) active, physical manipulation of materials. For disadvantaged children in particular, the social psychological setting within the classroom is important, i.e., small group learning situations which also enable interaction with the peer reference group.
