An Individualized Prescriptive Teaching Programme for Institutionalized Retarded Children.
Peniston, Eugene G.
The effectiveness of a prescriptive teaching program on the reading, arithmetic, and linguistic development of 35 institutionalized mentally retarded children (mean age 12 years) was investigated. A prescriptive, precision teaching approach was used, along with positive reinforcement in the curriculum areas of reading, mathematical computations, and linguistic development. Analysis of the data from pre- and posttests of the Wide Range Achievement Test and the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities indicated significant gains in all three areas. (Author/CL)
