Northwest Special Education Program Model: Title III. A Model for Helping Students with Learning Disabilities. 1971-1974.
The Northwest Special Education (NWSE) program model was designed to identify and provide analysis of academic and behavioral characteristics of rural area learning disabled students to facilitate prescriptive planning to be carried out through tutorial activities. Formal assessment procedures were carried out by the consultant while informal assessment procedures were done by the itinerant resource tutors. Among program findings was that the greatest amount of change was recorded on the test of word lists which required direct application of decoding skills and was indicative of transfer and generalization of skills. Among project activities were inservice training in diagnosis and remediation and development of job descriptions for the consultant-supervisor and itinerant resource tutor. (Graphs and illustrations on procedures and program content, which include a flow chart of the referral and implementation process and a sample teaching session sheet, are provided.) (SBH)
