A Developmental Mathematics Program for Learning Disabled Adolescents.
White, June Miller
A developmental mathematics program at Hill Top Preparatory School in Rosemont, Pennsylvania is designed to help learning disabled students prepare for jobs and college work. Intended for non-college bound as well as for the college bound, the program emphasizes aspects of environment (appropriate placement, self pacing, small groups), process (sequential instruction, stress on learning style), and staff (recognition of student's potential and development of trust). Four curriculum components are involved: fundamentals, including basic computations and basic decisionmaking, traditional secondary content, computer science, and college level work. Standardized tests are administered based on functioning level. (CL)
