A Long-Range, Diagnostic-Prescriptive Reading Intervention Program Employing the Frostig Test of Visual Perceptual Development and the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities with Low Socioeconomic, Semi-Urban, Elementary Students of the Okaloosa County Florida Public Schools.
Stapleton, LeRoy Earl
The purpose of this study was to determine the comparative effects of the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception (DTVP) and the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities (ITPA) treatment interventions on oral reading, psycholinguistic growth, total achievement, and achievement in the areas of reading, language, and arithmetic. The research subjects remaining in the study after thirty months of treatment were 29 third, fourth, and fifth grade students in the age range of 125 to 140 months, who were assigned to eight different elementary schools. Approximately 70 percent of the subjects were black and 30 percent were white. The experimental subjects worked in a normal school reading laboratory, under the supervision of a certified supervisor of reading and ten para-professional teachers. The combined Frostig-ITPA treatment subjects did not reach significance in oral reading. They reached high significance in psycholinguistic abilities as measured by test and retest scores on the ITPA. They reached significance in language achievement as measured by the California Test of Basic Skills. Significance was not reached on the criterion values of restoring 50 percent of the experimental subjects to reading normalcy. (Author/WR)
