A Training, Demonstration and Research Program for the Remediation of Learning Disorders in Culturally Disadvantaged Youth. (In 2 parts.) Final Report.
Feshbach, Seymour; And Others
This project focuses on (a) the empirical findings regarding achievement, cognitive, motivational, and behavioral similarities and differences between the culturally disadvantaged and the more advantaged with learning disabilities, before and after remediation, as well as the changes which accrued from the remedial programs, and (b) discussion of the implications of these findings for some of the basic issues relevant to educating the disadvantaged and the educationally handicapped. The major findings may be summarized as indicating that, under appropriate conditions, the disadvantaged students: (a) learned and performed as effectively as their advantaged counterparts with learning disabilities, and (b) manifested similar basic attitudes concerning the value of education. Taken as a whole, the study is seen as providing evidence in support of the favorable consequences of integration for disadvantaged youngsters and of comprehensive compensatory education programs, as contrasted with piecemeal efforts.
