California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Program Planning and Development.; Encinitas Union School District, CA.
This final report on Sensory Adjustment for Effective Reading contains information related to the two major objectives of the reading program: to diagnose and treat sensorily deficient kindergarten and primary children, and to individualize the kindergarten and primary reading program utilizing sensory information. Activities conducted to achieve these objectives involved screening tests for vision and hearing and diagnostic tests administered for language development, phonic needs, and reading level. Reading instruction consisted of a two hour reading period, one hour with a paid teacher aide and one with volunteer aides. Language experience was emphasized with dictated and creative story writing. Speech and phonic diagnosed students were provided experiences in small group or individual sessions with both teacher and teacher aide directing their learning. Evaluation of the program indicated that K-3 screening and diagnostic sensory testing was completed successfully and individualization did occurr in 77 percent of the classrooms. However, treatment grade level groups did not achieve significantly over control groups in reading at posttesting. (WR)
