To Plan and Build a Diagnostic-Prescriptive Model for the Identification and Remediation of Developmental Immaturities in Students Entering Grade One.
Hensley, Barry S.
This paper discusses the development and implementation of a model to identify developmental immaturities in kindergarten children preparing to enter first grade and to write remedial educational prescriptions designed to correct these immaturities. Kindergarten and first-grade teachers, as well as special services personnel and principals, were trained to administer and interpret an individualized screening instrument (the Mann-Suiter Developmental Inventory) designed to identify immaturities in the visual and auditory learning modalities of kindergarten students. The program model included inservice training for involved personnel, the evaluation of approximately 185 kindergarten students, and a series of staffings where remedial educational prescriptions (based on criterion referenced anticipated increases in learning) were established for each student found to have developmental immaturities. Follow-up of students was planned. The appendix includes the Mann-Suiter Developmental Screening record forms and tables presenting areas of diagnosed developmental immaturities for each student with matching criterion referenced remedial educational prescriptions.
