Northwest Missouri State Coll., Maryville.
In order to carry out the objective that students identified as retarded in reading will increase their reading achievement ot a predicted level based on accumulated data and diagnostic results, activities centered around three areas of concentration. (1) An exemplary program for the diagnosis of reading disabilities was established. Project area schools referred reading disability cases to the clinic on a rotating basis. Parents, school administrators, and teachers were involved in the referral procedures. Case study reports were prepared and forwarded to the principal of the referring school, and parents were notified by the clinic to make arrangements for discussing the report. (2) Remedial services were provided by members of the clinic. For an eight-week period during the summer, special remedial classes were organized. (3) In-service activities were planned according to the indicated needs of the project area schools. The findings indicated that 88 percent of the cases did increase their reading achievement above the predicted level for the period of remediation. (WR)
