A Cursive Handwriting Skills Program for LD Students To Be Used by Regular and LD Teachers.
McMillan, Ida L.
Many learning disabled students attending Avocado Elementary School in Homestead, Florida, were unable to write legibly when taught with available cursive handwriting programs. To redress the problem, a complete, sequential cursive handwriting program was devised for use with learning disabled and other students. The program combined tracing and behavior modification techniques and was continued for 9 months. Of all students included in the program, 75 percent in the second grade and 100 percent in the third grade were able to produce average or above average cursive handwriting samples 80 percent of the time. The remaining 25 percent of the second grade students achieved fair cursive handwriting samples. After intervention, participating students had adequate scores on the five subtests of the Slingerland Screening Test for Identifying Children with Learning Disabilities. A checklist of written expression is appended. (RH)
