Early Identification of Learning Disabilities: A Discussion and Approach.
Prescriptive Educational Systems, Akron, OH.
This paper reviews the history of developing techniques to identify learning problems in children. Dr. Eugene Medvehoff's approach to identifying potential learning problems in young children is delineated. The system evaluates six areas of pupil behavior; visual, visual motor, speech and hearing, physical and behavioral, psychomotor, and psychological. Materials have been designed to test and diagnose and to implement classroom curricula, in order to correct the learning impairments. Although developed specifically for kindergarten and grade 1, the materials may be useful to correctively treat students at any grade level. (SET)
