New Counselor Strategies--Implementing Learning Disability Programs.
Klein, Rosalyn; Youngblood, Brenda
The authors offer remedial techniques which might help counselors to deal with children with learning disabilities. Ninety-five percent of children with learning disabilities suffer difficulties in the visual and auditory modalities. Children with visual problems may experience difficulties in visual discrimination, visual-motor coordination and visual memory. In the auditory modality, a child may suffer from difficulties in auditory discrimination and auditory memory. The authors describe several remedial techniques to treat each of the mentioned learning disabilities, adopting a team approach to the problem. Before a child is treated, an effort is made to determine the specific nature and degree of his impairment. The latter is accomplished by the administration of achievement, and other appropriate visual and auditory tests as well as by the completion of a questionnaire by the teacher describing the details of the problem. Afterwards, the teacher, the counselor, the reading specialist and other specialists consult together and prepare a detailed program for remedying the specific difficulty faced. The program is carried out in a special room called the "resource room." Periodically, similar consultations are held to assess the progress made and to plan new approaches, if necessary. (Author/SE)
