A Method for Creating and Continuing Individualized Instruction.
Langstaff, Anne L.; Volkmor, Cara B.
Children who have specific learning problems in spite of intact intelligence and sense organs require a type of instruction that is adapted to their particular learning assets and liabilities. The "systems model" that is described consists of two input-output cycles which involve the teacher and the school psychologist. The teacher makes structured observations of the child's behavior which is transmitted to the psychologist for use in interpreting test results. The psychologist provides the teacher with a functional analysis of the child's learning style and status. The teacher then begins to plan a remedial program for which the goals and behaviors are clearly defined and a definite sequential procedure is to be followed. Materials which are most likely to bring about a desired response are selected. Revision and modification of procedures, objectives, and materials are outcomes of continuous evaluation of behavior change as it occurs. References are included. (DH)
