Emphasis in the Jennings, Missouri, Learning Laboratory Program is placed on improving reading and language arts skills by first diagnosing and assessing the disability and then developing an individually prescribed program in which the student can utilize his strengths and remedy his weaknesses. With the goal of improving the English-reading skills of 130 kindergarten through twelfth grade students, the special project team located in the central learning laboratory and four diagnostic centers involves these personnel: laboratory coordinator, learning specialist, clinical psychologist, social worker, counselors, interns, diagnostic teachers, and instructional aides. An inservice training program is conducted to instruct seven English teachers annually in methods of diagnosing and prescribing programs for children with learning deficiencies as well as providing these teachers with methods for helping the students to overcome their learning problems in reading. Continual evaluation of student progress and staff techniques is made while the program is being carried out. The success of the program as a whole is measured through the use of pretests and posttests designed to determine the extent to which project goals have been met. (WR)
