A School Psychologist's Perceptions of Learning Disabilities in Three-Year-Old Children in an Early Childhood Center.
Graf, Mercedes
Discussed are issues in screening children for potential learning disabilities at the nursery school level. Definitions and incidence estimates of learning disabilities are evaluated, and present screening programs are reviewed. Three teacher administered screening tests are described: Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Beery Developmental Test of Visual Motor Coordination, and Caldwell Preschool Inventory. A child study is given in which a 3-year-old child suspected of having a learning disability turned out to be at high risk because of lack of opportunity to develop personal social skills. Strongly recommended are the reviewing of test manuals before undertaking a screening project; gaining the cooperation of parents in remediation of and home management techniques; increasing cooperation among pediatricians, schools, and parents; and encouraging teachers to grow professionally.
