Papers generally include an outline of the topic discussed followed by samples of the instructional materials presented. An overview of an itinerant learning disabilities training and service model points out that a key feature of the program is a materials retrieval system. Assessing and training perceptual motor processes and perceptual materials and techniques are then discussed. Formal and informal testing for oral and silent reading is covered, followed by explanation of the writing of instructional behavioral objectives. Explanation of mathematics instructional materials and techniques precedes coverage of prescription process and prescription writing and a short paper on administration and scoring of an informal skills tests. A lengthy paper then provides instructions for parents to implement behavior modification programs with their children. The next topic is instructional material and teaching techniques, especially in relationship to reading, which is followed by short papers on Q sort, using readability measures, participant administration of an informal skill test, and task analysis, respectively.
