Your Child and You.
Barnard, Marlys; And Others
The booklet for parents of 5-year-old children is explained to have been developed by a Title III project to help identify and remediate early learning disabilities. The booklet provided guidelines for readying the child for school and includes a listing of characteristics of the 5-year-old, suggestions for good physical health, educational suggestions (such as providing varied experiences), a checklist of specific skills (such as giving first and last name) needed by the child, guidelines for the child's expanding world (such as teaching the child polite behavior in public places), and suggestions for healthy emotional development. Briefly described are the Title III project's three phases: contracting and screening all 5-year-olds in the school district, implementing special classes for identified children, and development by the children of packets designed to reinforce learning through home experiences during the summer. Also provided are listings of Title III staff, of elementary schools in the district, of community resources, and of the manuscript alphabet. (DB)
