Described are the testing procedure and the project design. Evaluation showed that 176 children were given the diagnostic battery, that the 136 children who were enrolled in the Learning Centers improved in academic areas such as visual motor integration and reading comprehension, and that 40 percent of the enrolled children were returned to the regular class by the end of the academic year.
