Administrators' Perceptions of Selected Aspects of Specific Learning Disabilities Programs in Florida School Districts.
Taylor, Patricia Silke
Investigated were the perceptions of programs for children with specific learning disabilities (SLD) expressed by 127 directors of special education programs, supervisors of SLD programs, and principals having SLD classes located in large, medium sized, or small Florida school districts. The administrators were queried regarding the characteristics of SLD pupils, reasons for referral, eligibility criteria, prevalence of SLD, the influence of psychologists, tests used for SLD identification, criteria for self contained placement, differential placement, and use of resource rooms. It is concluded that the Florida SLD eligibility criteria should continue to be used and clarified in order to standardize identification and placement procedures, that the accepted prevalence rate should be increased to at least 3%, that the training of SLD teachers should include preparation in testing and consultative work, and that SLD teachers and resource rooms be provided for those pupils on waiting lists.
