The Child as an Integrating Organism. Symposium, 1968.
Johnson, Doris J.
The lack of integration in children with learning disabilities is discussed, and the need presented for early identification and special education. Recommendations are made for times for screening and areas of learning to be assessed from kindergarten through high school. Observation of behavior in preschool children in the realms of attention, social perception, auditory behavior (both receptive and expressive), visual perception and memory, and motor coordination is suggested as a means for teachers to identify and remediate problems; methods for observing are given. Deficient learning in these areas is mentioned: body image disturbances, time orientation, and prenumber concepts. An appendix contains a form for the evaluation of preschool children. (RP)
