The Theory of Love Concept as an Integral Part in the Education of the Educable Mentally Retarded Youth.
Tillman, Lois J.
Examined in the doctoral dissertation research was the effectiveness of a humane value activity oriented summer program to increase IQ scores and improve behaviors of 40 educable mentally retarded (EMR) children between 6 and 12 years of age. Teachers of the experimental group participated in a 10-day workshop on ways to incorporate the humane value concept into activities with EMR children. A pretest-posttest control group design was used for the two IQ measures (Stanford Binet Intelligence Scale and Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test), and a Posttest-Only Control Group Design was used for the Behavior Rating Scale. Findings indicated that the humane value workshop probably affected teacher planning and content of activities, that the humane value treatment did not affect the I.Q. scores of the EMR pupils, and that the humane value treatment improved the Ss' behavior.
