Preliminary Summary Report on the JPII Project.
Richmond Public Schools, VA.
A screening survey of 272 first grade pupils, for the purpose of detection and remediation of special learning problems was conducted. Purposes were to: (1) screen out pupils with potential learning and school adjustment problems, (2) prevent the amplification of these problems and (3) suggest, to teachers, proper techniques and methods of grouping in the classroom. The Richmond Screening Examination, form JPIIEXP was used, with sections on (1) Personality Evaluation and Emotional Adjustment, (2) Inquiry to Draw-a-Person, (3) Perceptual Ability and Organicity, (4) Reading Ability, and (5) Lateral Dominance, Eye-Hand-Foot Coordination. The results were evaluated in terms of (1) organicity or perceptual difficulties, (2) emotional problems, (3) mental retardation, and (4) reading level. Results revealed: (1) many more pupils with emotional problems than was expected, (2) students with above average intelligence but with mixed dominance did not reach their full reading potential, and (3) there is a need for tests to detect reading problems early. Participating personnel feel that the value of the study lies in the joint meetings of teachers, psychologists, and consultants and the subsequent stimulation of more action toward early problem detection and prevention of children with learning problems.
