A Diagnostic and Remedial Reading Center was organized at the District Office to service 160 pupils in District 22, Brooklyn, elementary schools who were diagnosed as non-learners. A total of 60 pupils were given remediation and therapeutic services four sessions a week during the regular school day. An additional 20 pupils received intensive remediation in reading by Brooklyn College students, and another 20 pupils in attendance at public and non-public elementary schools in District 22 were serviced by the Center three afternoons a week on an after-school basis. Diagnoses were made and an instructional program devised for the remaining 60 pupils; followup programs for these participants were instituted by the home schools. The State Urban Education "Reading Laboratory" Program was designed to improve the reading skills of selected elementary and junior high school students. Reading Laboratories were organized in one elementary school and four intermediate and junior high schools. A total of eight educational assistants was assigned initially to provide intensive individualized and small group instruction in reading and mathematics to eligible underachieving pupils in attendance at four schools in District 22, Brooklyn. An additional four assistants were allocated in December, 1973. Overall, the educational assistants have provided important services for participants, and it is recommended that the program be recycled. (Author/JM)
