Described in three documents is the Early Prevention of School Failure Project which is designed to identify and provide programs for preschool learning disabled children. Screening tests are said to include evaluations of visual motor integration, speech, language and motor development. Considered in the pamphlet are services provided in Model Learning Disability Kindergartens for children with severe learning problems and therapy and teacher consultation services for children with milder difficulties. It is explained that validation results indicate growth exceeding project objectives in receptive language, visual motor and psycholinguistic development. Provided in accompanying documents are information regarding replication of the project in local schools, an annual report to the President and Congress which touches on program implementation costs.
