A Learning Center for the Development of Reading and Communication Potential.
Telder, Thomas V.
The development of the Maine Township (Illinois) Diagnostic and Remedial Learning Centers, a Title III/ESEA project, is described. The remedial learning centers, located in three elementary school districts and in one high school district, are termed model programs because they are designed to treat pupils in that one school. Each learning center is staffed with a teacher consultant, reading specialists, and a learning disabilities teacher. The teacher consultant makes an initial educational assessment and develops a prescriptive educational program either in the classroom or with the specialists in individual or small group remedial classes. A basic tenet of this program is to provide continual diagnosis while an educational program is in progress. The teacher-consultant may refer the child to the diagnostic learning center for a more extensive multidisciplinary evaluation. Provisions for inservice training are made, including released time for workshops, conferences, and observations. Another phase of this program includes counseling for parents of children with learning difficulties. Future developments of the project are discussed. (CM)
