The Child with Special Problems: An Evaluation Report.
Ferguson-Florissant School District, Ferguson, MO.
This report examines the impact of the Saturday School (a school and home learning program for 4-year-olds in a large suburban school district) on the following four groups: (1) students with learning disabilities, (2) students identified as either "mentally retarded" or of "low intellectual functioning", (3) students with emotional problems, and (4) parents of students with emotional problems. Standardized test results and ratings, administered in a pre-post design, constitute the majority of the data presented for each of the three years of program operation. Followup data on the lasting effects of the program into the kindergarten year are also presented for students with emotional problems. It is concluded that the program has had a significant impact on the students identified as having some kind of problem affecting their learning, as well as on the parents of emotionally disturbed students. Data tables are included. (ED)
