A variety of activities to improve auditory, visual, motor, and academic skills of learning disabled children are presented for teachers' use. Activities are grouped under perceptual skills and color coded for easy access. Given for each activity are the names (such as Milkman Mixup), idea or purpose (one example is improvement of fine motor control), materials used, procedures, and in most cases, illustrative drawings. For development of auditory skills, activities are assembled in the following categories (number of activities for each is noted in parenthesis): following directions (4), auditory discrimination (5), memory (7), auditory association (1), grammatic closure (2), and verbal expression (1). The activities given for improvement of visual skills are amassed in the categories of perception (1). discrimination (4), sequencing (2), memory (6), association (3), closure (2), motor (1), and ocular (2). Included in the section on motor development are the following categories: tactile discrimination (1), spatial organization (1), fine and gross motor control development (8), eye-hand coordination (4), following directions (1), tracking (2), balance (3), left to right sequencing (1), and directionality (6). Games are described in a separate section and deal with perceptual drill in addition combinations, phonics, spelling, vocabulary, and word patterns. [Reproduced from best available copy.] (MC)
