[Diagnostic-Prescriptive-Individualized (D.P.I.) Primary Reading Program].
Louisville Univ., KY.
One of the programs included in "Effective Reading Programs...," this program serves over 3,100 first, second, and third grade, predominantly disadvantaged children. Approximately 2,000 junior high school students also participate in the program as cross-age tutors. Begun in 1972, the program focuses on reading and language development. Children work from educational prescriptions, prepared at the beginning of each of 10 three-week cycles. The content of prescriptions is determined by the child's ability level and specific strengths and weaknesses as identified by standardized and diagnostic tests, the child's most effective learning mode, and the child's interests. At the end of each three-week cycle, criterion-referenced items based on specific objectives are administered and prescriptions are adjusted accordingly. (TO/AIR)
