Assessment Classes for L.D. Students.
Cramer, Joyce; And Others
The Special Education Department of the Omaha Public Schools implemented assessment classes for students identified as learning disabled. The classes offer the opportunity for in-depth evaluation of behavior in a variety of situations and with many different techniques and materials. Four critical elements of LD assessment classes include: the design (students are bused to the LD Diagnostic Center from their regular school classes); the staff (staff includes four master teachers, a speech-language pathologist, an aide, and a secretary); the process (information is analyzed regarding learning characteristics, alternate curriculum and materials); and parental involvement (parents are invited to visit the class). Among additional services of the center are review of new instructional materials, demonstration teaching, and inservice teacher training. Accompanying background materials include guides, forms, and evaluation instruments from the LD center; and the publication, "News and Views of the Learning Disabilities Programs." (CL)
