Preparing Classroom Teachers to Work with Severely Underachieving Pupils through an Internship in a Regional Learning Disability Center.
During the period from September 1967 through June 1969, a total of 23 classroom teachers served internships in a Title III-funded Regional Learning Disabilities Center. The instructional cycles were of 11-weeks duration, and each teacher tutored 15 children each cycle. The internship training consisted of tutoring individually and in small groups, conferring with other clinic personnel on individual cases, preparing diagnostic case studies and detailed progress reports, and administering a variety of informal and standardized testing instruments. Case conferences, seminars, and 15 inservice colloquia also contributed to staff development. Student and parent interest in the center activities were highly positive. Following the internship training, most of the 23 interns assumed positions as reading specialists with the sponsoring school district. (CM)
