Diagnosis and Prescription for L.D. Problems of E.D. Adolescents Within a Residential Treatment Center.
Clary, Sonja
A total education program involving evaluation, remediation, and tutoring has been developed at a residential treatment center for emotionally disturbed adolescents. An educational evaluation is given to all students upon entrance to the center and usually includes both formal and informal tests on auditory perception, fine motor abilities, and academics. Individual instruction for teachers during school hours and a remediation program administered by child care workers before and after school are provided for children with specific learning disabilities. To obtain the best results in terms of behavioral and educational objectives, the child's needs are assessed on an individual basis and behavioral contracts are made according to those needs. (SB)
