A Program for Early Identification of Learning Disabilities: Kit 1 - The Educational Evaluation.
Petersen, Wretha
The Educational Evaluation is the first of three kits in a program developed to assist the special education or classroom teacher in providing a successful educational experience for children having trouble with a normal academic program. Kit 1 is equipped with materials and directions to systematically seek and interpret the various areas and causes of learning disability. Although developed especially for use at the kindergarten and first grade levels, the material can be adapted for use with older elementary students and the mentally retarded. Designed to be administered to one child at a time to discover his individual strengths and weaknesses, the complete kit includes a manual in the form of a three-ring notebook which contains plastic envelopes filled with testing materials, a supply of record booklets, and a compartmentalized box containing the bulkier materials. The materials are used to evaluate the child in such areas as visual, auditory, spatial, temporal, and tactile kinesthetic perception, recall, gross and fine motor coordination, language formulation, directionality, eye-hand coordination, body concept, and ability to organize both concretely and mentally and to integrate and use information received.
