The general objective of this Title III project was a massive attack upon reading problems in the public and nonpublic schools of Northwest Indiana. Under this project, the Northwest Indiana Elementary and Secondary School Cooperative was formed among 32 public school corporations. Disabled readers of normal intelligence were identified, individual pupil reading difficulties were diagnosed, and a treatment prescription was given to his teacher. Instructional materials were also developed to assist the teacher with instruction. An intense inservice reading program was conducted with 8,906 teacher participants. In addition, 106 teachers have taken undergraduate course work in reading, and 30 of these have completed the clinical practicum course and are serving as reading clinicians with the Northwest Educational Center. From pretest and post-test comparison, it was found that successful intervention of failure patterns was achieved in 80 percent of the cases seen by the reading clinic. (AW)
