Vicente, Ann R., Ed.
The resource guide was designed primarily for teachers in British Columbia and provides information for working with mainstreamed learning disabled children. The guide is divided into the following eight topics (with sample papers in parentheses): learning disabilities ("Myths and Realities in Learning Disabilities" by W. Cruickshank, "Learning Disabilities--A Critical Look at Methods of Assessment and Remediation" by W. Hawke); elementary classroom teachers ("Cloze Procedure" by R. Wilson, "Detection of Children with Learning Disabilities" by B. Reid, "Hints for Teachers of Learning Disabled Children" by N. Munro); elementary learning assistance teachers ("Educational Planning Based on Diagnosis" by J. McCarthy, "The Person Called Learning Disabled and Behavior Disordered" by Reynolds and Birch); secondary classroom teachers ("From a Parent--What is Being Done" by D. Kronick); secondary special programs ("Excerpts from Peer Tutoring Handbook" by E. Gilchrist); administrators, coordinators, principals ("Educational Program Planning Model" by R. Parker, "Evaluation of Role of Supervisor of Special Services" by R. Parker); and parents ("Guidelines for Parents, Teachers and Volunteers" by B. Reid). Among appendixes are lists of materials available in language arts, math, science and other areas; lists of publishers of educational materials, organizations, and periodicals in the field; as well as a glossary of terms.
