Exceptional Children Conference Papers: Learning and Language Disabilities.
Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
The ten conference papers on learning and language disabilities begin with discussions of staff development procedures for teachers of language handicapped children, methods of instructional intervention for such children, and the comparative utility of the limited, intensive, and comprehensive methods of identification and evaluation of language handicapped students. Research reported concerns the elimination of isolate behavior of a girl in a learning disability class, the contributions of perceptual and conceptual skill training to ability to discriminate and reproduce geometric form, use of distributive practices to modify spelling performance, and the electroencephalogram as a predictor of intellective and academic performance. Additional papers discuss behavioral aspects of learning disabilities and recent developments in the education of learning disabled adolescents. (KW)
