The Development and Validation of an Individualized Perceptual Skills Curriculum.
This document describes the methods employed in, the information gathered during, and the current status of this project. The project attempted to (1) identify those perceptual skills that appear to be directly related to the basic classroom tasks of reading and arithmetic at the primary level, (2) identify perceptual skills that relate directly to classroom achievement and determine if such skills can be trained effectively, (3) determine if training in perceptual skills can be measured in terms of classroom behaviors, and (4) describe the training graphically and persuasively to permit its implementation and management in public school classrooms. These four goals have been attained, and resulting data further demonstrate that transfer effects in classroom behavior are evidenced. (Author/RA)
