Project Genesis. Final Report.
Project Genesis is a preventative program which tries to identify potential learning deviancies before children enter kindergarten, and which provides individualized programming to offset future learning problems. Clinics held in the spring test each child entering kindergarten the following fall on perceptual-motor abilities, hearing, speech, language development, vision, developmental maturity, and learning readiness. Any child who displays a potential learning problem during the screening has an individualized program of learning activities developed for him by a master teacher trained in developmental learning. A perceptual-motor aide and a vision consultant assist in program planning. The prescribed program is carried out through individual weekly or daily sessions. The teacher in each child's regular classroom and the child's parents also participate. (NH)
