How Do New Jersey University/College-Based Reading Clinics Operate?
Preininger, Patricia Vogel
To collect information about the operational structure of reading clinics in New Jersey's universities and colleges was the purpose of the research reported in this paper. Chapter one presents the purpose of the study, the statement of the problem, a definition of terms, limitations of the study, and the significance of the study. Chapter two deals with a review of the literature, which reveals three areas of interest: (1) the services to the community, (2) practicum coursework and clinical training programs for graduate students, and (3) the results of recent national surveys of reading clinics. Chapter three contains information about methods and procedures used in collecting data about college/university clinic facilities and their graduate reading programs. Chapter four presents the answers to 12 specific questions posed by the study, while chapter five contains the 12 major conclusions of the study and recommendations to be made to clinic directors and college administrators. Tables of findings accompany the text, and the cover letter and survey used in the study are appended. (EL)
