Identification and Programming for Learning Disabled Students: The Parents' Part.
Dickson, Richard L.
The yearly increase in the number of learning disabled (LD) students is considered, and it is suggested that the increase is one symptom of school systems' unwillingness to deal with the problems or underachievement. A need exists for special educators to differentiate between LD and underachieving students. Three alternatives to the problem are cited: systematic use of local eligibility criteria, creation and support of more effective schools, and advocacy for all handicapped students. Each alternative is explored, and it is concluded that increasing academic learning time can make a dramatic difference. The parents' influence on individualized education program development is considered. Recommendations are proposed whereby parents can influence the teacher and the curriculum, and guidelines are offered for estimating the appropriateness of proposed instructional time in the resource program.
