The Effect of Neurological Impress on Reading-Disabled Children with Auditory Perception Impairments.
Cook, Jimmie E.; And Others
The neurological impress approach to remedial reading was investigated in a spring session involving 20 children and in a summer session involving 24 children. Children ranging in age from 7 to 14 were paired according to age and intelligence and then were assigned randomly to experimental or control treatments. All were at least a year behind in reading achievement and had low auditory-perception scores. Instruction was administered on a one-to-one basis by graduate students trained in carrying out the impress method. Subjects were pre- and posttested for word recognition, oral comprehension, and silent comprehension. Significant differences favoring the experimental group were found for oral reading comprehension and silent reading comprehension in both sessions, and for word recognition during the summer session. Problems such as fatigue and the need for close supervision of the instructional program are discussed. (AA)
