This program, included in "Effective Reading Progrms...," serves 265 elementary and presecondary-level students in six private learning centers. In addition, more than 7,000 students in K-12 are served in 30 public school reading-achievement centers. The program is designed to help children at all levels of reading ability. It employs an individualized prescriptive approach to reading instruction and begins with thorough diagnostic testing to determine each child's needs and potential. Subsequently, the learning director designs an individualized written prescription for each child, focusing on the following areas of reading skills: word attack, vocabulary, comprehension, speed, application, and pleasure. The program uses a motivational system, including immediate reinforcement in the form of programed materials and verbal praise, and rewards in the form of tokens and free time. (WR)
