Methodological Issues in the Early Identification of a High Risk Population in an Urban Public School System.
Kosinski, Sharon
This paper describes Project HELP (Highlighting Early Learning Problems) stated to have been designed to determine or to develop a battery of screening instruments to identify those K-1 students who manifest learning problems indicative of exceptionality. The purposes, objectives, and a summary of the types of evaluation questions the study sought to investigate are provided. The methodology section contains a description of the sample involved and the screening instruments used. The instruments used in the identification of potential learning problems at level one include a teacher checklist of development, parent checklist of development, teacher observation survey, and language and health screening form. A summary of the procedure involved with each instrument is discussed. The results of the study indicate an overall high risk percentage of approximately 22 percent which is considered to approximate theoretical high risk percentages of potential learning problems specified by professionals in the field of special education. Several recommendations are made, among them being a projected information retrieval system, a proposed diagnostic/assessment center, and in-service training program. (Author/AM)
