Multi-Sensory Approach to Reading Disabilities.
Patterson, Natalie E., Comp.
Educational diagnostic methods were used to screen children evidencing minimal brain damage, dyslexia, or emotional problems. Of 750 children, 15% had such difficulties; they received a highly structured language arts program in homogeneous transition groups while remaining in their usual homeroom. In addition, they participated in motor training and a rhythm and patterning program. Academic gains resulted in various areas; reading ages increased an average of 1.7. Appendixes, comprising about two-thirds of the document, provide the referral form and an explanation of it along with descriptions of methods and materials used in the three programs. (JD)
