Prescriptive Profile Procedure for Children With Learning Disabilities.
Levine, Eleanor; Fineman, Carol
The Prescriptive Profile Procedure (PPP) attempts to provide teachers of learning disabled elementary school children with a procedure of individualized diagnosis and educational prescription which encompasses strengths and weaknesses in prerequisite skills, basic school subjects, and behavioral factors. A competency statement and six to 12 behavioral objectives for the teacher using the document introduce each section. Approximately 20 pages of self-evaluative applications follow each section to determine whether the objectives have been met. Diagnosis and prescription for a hypothetical child illustrate the procedure throughout the document. Explained in the section on prerequisite skills are using the test battery, recording test data, profiling prerequisite skills test scores, and interpreting and prescribing in the area of prerequisite skills. Diagnosis, prescription, and examples of instructional objectives are given in the second section on the basic school subjects of reading, mathematics, writing, and spelling. Behavioral factors are considered in the third section which describes the PPP behavior profile, the L-J sociometric test, the self appraisal inventory, and the PPP school sentence form. The final section deals with prescription integration in terms of deficit prescription charts, a prescription planning page, and a method and materials chart. (DB)
