The Academic Underachiever.
Sargent (Porter), Publisher, Boston, MA.
The handbook classifies and describes over 700 programs and services for students who, due to behavioral, motivational, or organic impairments, are considered underachievers in the regular educational system. Listed by state are private schools which are primarily academic in nature; schools which are more specialized to treat and educate children with learning disabilities, whether of organic origin or related to behavioral factors; free or alternative educational programs; clinical facilities involved in the diagnosis of learning disabilities; and more specialized clinics offering both diagnosis and instruction, such as reading clinics. Additional listings include a classification of facilities by special features (such as boarding, coed, milieu therapy, therapeutic arts and crafts, full time psychiatric personnel, summer session, vocational training, and others), and a brief list of agencies and organizations as possible sources for further information.
