Classroom Screening for Learning Disabilities in the Primary Grades: Utilization of the Slingerland Screening Tests for the Identification of Perceptual-Motor Deficits.
Ansara, Alice
The effects of maturational lag and innate perceptual-motor language learning disabilities on primary-grade children's school performance are discussed. Early identification of these learning disabilities is emphasized. A pilot study using 280 second- and third-grade children is described in which the feasibility of whole classroom screening to avoid identification delay was demonstrated. The Slingerland Screening Tests were used to identify visual, auditory, and kinesthetic problems and to indicate when there was a need for referral for extensive diagnosis. Further research now being conducted to test the feasibility and reliability of the Slingerland tests is cited. A bibliography is included. (RT)
