Handbook of Pupil Experiences for "High Challenge" Children - Those Children with Learning Problems.
Jones, Juanita; And Others
The guide is intended to familiarize primary grade teachers with the special learning characteristics of students with a high risk for a learning disability (those who are beginning to show an inability to work with symbols or to think abstractly) and to assist the teachers in the diagnosis of the specific nature of their learning problems. Possible etiologies of learning disabilities are suggested, and the developmental characteristics of the learning disabled child are compared to those of an average child. A model is presented for standardized and informal evaluation by the classroom teacher and by various consultants. Presented are developmental techniques and materials for areas of weakness at any level before the academic, and special teaching techniques and materials for teaching academic subjects to the potentially learning disabled child. Skill areas covered are motor development, visual development, visual motor development (including fine motor and pre-writing skills), auditory development, haptic development, body concept development, affect development, and academic development in the areas of reading and language, mathematics, and science. Classroom organization is also discussed. (KW)
