The Early Identification and Remediation of Learning Problems in Elementary School Children as an Attempt to Increase Success in the Regular Classroom: A Project Progress Report.
Barnard, James W.
The research project described involves young elementary school children with demonstrable learning problems. These children either receive an intervention program or no intervention and are placed in either a regular or a small, self contained classroom setting. Student placement is made on the basis of psychometric test scores and teacher recommendations. Project personnel include coordinators and several consultants in the areas of administration, curriculum, social and clinical services, and evaluation. Teachers come from the schools involved and receive orientation along with their principals. Teacher aides constitute a major component of the intervention package, as does the upgrading of teaching. Information is provided concerning the inservice training workshops, special materials, and programs for clinical services, speech improvement, behavioral management, motor development, and visual perception. The planned followup, evaluation, and project timetable are presented. (JD)
