Project ENRICH.
Gwaley, Elizabeth; And Others
Project ENRICH was conceived in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, to: (1) identify preschool children with learning disabilities, and (2) to develop a program geared to the remediation of the learning disabilities within a school year, while allowing the child to be enrolled in a regular class situation for the following school year. Through kindergarten teachers and parent cooperation, 34 children were enrolled, all with an intelligence quotient of 90 or better. The average age was 5.5 years. Each child was classified as having a particular disability. Each child was tested extensively, using the Stanford Binet along with other instruments. The curriculum is carefully explained, including a diagram of areas covered. Tables give the precise results of the program at its conclusion. The authors felt that generally the curricular attack used in this program may efficiently and positively modify learner behavior and significantly reduce the negative effects of the various learning disabilities treated in this project. The remediation expected was met and exceeded. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/KJ)
