The report reproduces forms and discusses procedures used in a preschool clinic designed to assess learning disabilities, developmental lags, and school readiness in a regular elementary school setting. Introductory remarks point out such matters as the importance of organizing auxiliary personnel into a pupil personnel services team, the need to schedule so that not over 25 students are screened per half day, and the helpfulness of informing parents ahead of time that they will be at the clinic for approximately two and one-half hours. Forms for a press release and a parent letter are included. Forms for information on perceptual screens such as the following are provided: a behavior responses checklist, the Frostig tests, and a health department worksheet. Staff handouts on the theory of perceptual training and on activities specifically designed to enhance abilities such as verbal expression and kinesthetic skills are given. Parents handouts suggesting guidelines on home training activities are also included. In addition, the report contains professional referral and record forms, a list of materials found useful in establishing the program, and sample correspondence. (GW)
