A Transportable Perceptual Model for the Improvement of Perception and Reading.
Wolf, Russell Murray
A reading program was devised to affect gains in reading for eighth grade students who had both perceptual and reading deficiencies. The program was divided into two phases, the first consisting of visual-motor-perceptual training conducted three times a week for twelve weeks, and the second composed of individualized reading instruction five times a week for 18 weeks. The second phase was conducted two months after the conclusion of the first. An analysis of the pretest and posttest data indicated that a majority of the 15 students who participated in the program improved their perceptual scores as well as their reading scores. (Extensive appendixes contain materials used in the program, including daily lesson plans, evaluation forms, form letters, and a guide to the program.) (FL)
