The Effects of a Teacher Consultant Model on Learning Disabled Children.
Bagley, Michael T.; Larsen, Stephen C.
A study was conducted to determine the academic and behavioral growth of 50 learning disabled students (in grades 2-5) who participated in a teacher-consultant program for 1 year. As part of the program, the consultant provided remedial instruction, visited the regular teachers to monitor and evaluate the work of special students, shared materials, and offered instructional techniques. Predictive levels of achievement for the 50 Ss were obtained through historical regression procedures, and the predicted achievement scores were compared to actual achievement scores. Ss' achievement gains were well beyond the predicted grade equivalents for each of the academic skill areas as measured by the Scientific Research Associates Achievement Test. Results for the affective area, although significant, were not as positive as results from the achievement area. (SB)
