Community School District 4, New York, NY.
Project BUILD (Bilingual Understanding Incorporates Learning Disabilities) combined the methodology and concerns of both special education and bilingual education to provide appropriate, supplemental educational treatment and opportunities to bilingual children with learning disabilities. Children in grades one through five received individualized and small group educational and therapeutic treatment outside of their regular classrooms. Additional program components included curriculum development, staff development, and parent involvement and education. The project was evaluated through reading achievement data, consultant observations, interviews with program staff, and questionnaires completed by teachers and parents. The evaluator found that program reading objectives were attained and other program components were well implemented. Tables of data are included. (MK)
