Final Report of Specialist Psycho-Educational Adult Remediation. The SPEAR Project, September, 1979 to June, 1980.
Manna Foundation, Inc., Greeley, CO.
The objectives of the SPEAR (Specialized Psycho-Educational Adult Remediation) project were to both introduce and incorporate mainstreamed adult basic education through offering specialized services to learning-disabled adults. This program both identified and educationally remediated specific learning disabilities and included educational and career planning suited to the individual. Of the 20 adults enrolled in the program, 12 attended regularly and remained in the program long enough to show some improvement in their performance. Following this narrative section, approximately one-half of the document is comprised of an outline of a slide presentation explaining the project. Topics covered include the three areas addressed by the project--selected perceptual-motor skills, language development skills, and conceptual skills--and Project SPEAR objectives. A table detailing grade level pre-test and post-test comparison of students is appended. (YLB)
