Self-Paced Competency-Based Introductory Program in Learning Disabilities.
Weber, Del D.; And Others
This paper describes the Self-Based Competency-Based introductory program in learning disabilities at Arizona State University that is designed to help students develop the basic competencies needed to know and understand why learning disabled children fail to learn. The 391 objectives included in this program were selected to provide students with competencies needed for successful entry into experiences that concentrate on how to remediate learning disabilities. The objectives are divided into 301 cognitive objectives; 64 affective objectives; and 26 skill objectives, which place emphasis on student demonstration of skill in the use of specific diagnostic techniques and instruments. The 32 units in the program are grouped into 9 modules that focus on a specific area. Each unit begins with a statement of cognitive objectives, affective objectives, and skill objectives and ends with a self-correcting posttest. (A nine-item bibliography is included, and a unit and posttests are appended.) (PD)
