George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Special Education Instructional Materials Center.; North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Special Education.
The handbook provides information to aid both regular and special education teachers in managing the curriculum for learning disabled students. Section I provides an introduction to the area of specific learning disabilities with chapters on the diagnostic process and on the distinction between slow learners and specific learning disabilities. Chapters in Section II cover the following areas (sample subtopics in parentheses): the learning disabilities teacher's role (dismissal criteria, continuum of services); developing school programs (materials used successfully in secondary learning disabilities programs, placement procedures); and writing an individual education program (long term goals, tips on reducing individualized education program writing time). A third section outlines seven specific areas (early childhood, reading, spelling, mathematics, handwriting, career/vocational education, spoken language) including a definition of each area, formal and informal diagnostic tests, and a listing of materials and references. Section IV provides information on the data gathering process and the analysis of individual and group statistics. A final section contains a listing of films, test publishers, addresses of test materials, relevant journals, professional organizations, and additional references. Sample forms, worksheets, and checklists are offered throughout the document. (SB)
