Remediation of the Learning Disabled Child.
Cahn, Lorynne
This paper discusses the placement, remediation, and management of the learning disabled child. The procedure for a professional assessment of the learning disabled child includes: (1) noting potentially dangerous signs such as poor visual and/or auditory memory for words, consistent letter or number reversals beyond the primary grades, short attention span, inordinate disorganization, and the inability to shift from one task to another; (2) teacher referral of the child for a professional diagnosis which should include a general screening (in speech, hearing, and neurological functioning), a psychological evaluation, and an educational evaluation; and (3) the establishment of a remedial program which should include a variety of materials, emphasize language first, overcome the perceptual disturbance, and modify inappropriate behaviors. Also included is a list of suggestions for the teacher working with learning disabled children in the special or regular classroom. (WR)
