Out-Patient Diagnostic and Remedial Services for Children with Minimal Cerebral Dysfunction.
Millman, Howard L.
The activities of a child guidance clinic which diagnoses and treats children with minimal cerebral dysfunction are described. Minimal brain dysfunction is explained, and diagnostic steps are discussed. As a major function of the program, neurological, optometric, auditory, oral, general physical, educational, and psychological evaluations are conducted, preferably at one center. Specific recommendations are then made according to the strengths and weaknesses revealed by the battery of tests. These recommendations often include special school, special class, additional training within a regular classroom, visual-motor training, counseling, relevant recreational programs, and parent counseling groups. Effective methods for presenting test findings to the parents are discussed, and the activities of parent counseling groups, which are viewed as an essential part of the clinical program, are described. A bibliography is included. (RT)
