Oklahoma Child Service Demonstration Center Formal Final Evaluation. July 1, 1975 to June 30, 1976.
Murphy, Philip J.
Provided is the 1975-76 evaluation of a center providing individualized prescriptive programs for secondary-level learning disabled students. Changes in the program for the third year of operation are noted to have been an emphasis on the evaluation of the group counseling format (based on Reality Therapy and using a team of two co-facilitators) used with 69 of the students. Results of the evaluation, which are presented in tabular form, are discussed. Among the findings discussed are that there was a significant positive gain in English grades for those students involved in group counseling when compared to controls; and that work methods, teacher approval, education acceptance, study attitudes, and study orientation all showed significant gains made by the group counseling students in relation to the control students.
