Special Delivery Systems. Final Report.
The Special Delivery Systems project developed a curriculum for students with learning disabilities (LD) in an adult basic education program. The curriculum was designed to assist and motivate the students in the educational process. Fourteen students with LD were recruited and screened. The curriculum addressed varied learning styles combined with the appropriate learning setting and self-esteem instruction, stress management, and communication and assertiveness skill training. The cognitive component of the Special Delivery Systems curriculum included adaptation for listening skills deficiencies, visual deficiencies, and attention deficits. Measurement of program success was based on the completed curriculum, written test results, and completed individualized education plans for students. (A bibliography lists 18 LD resources. These appendixes are attached to the 16-page report: student intake form; individualized enrollment plan; screening tool and example; screening procedure; permission form and example; Slosson Oral Reading Test (SORT); SORT lists for distractable clients; Barsch learning style inventory; Torrance brain dominance analysis; psychological evaluations; client contact form; LD status report and example; educational counseling service screening; LD reading strategies; LD behaviors list; information on auditory and visual dyslexia; and informative handouts from an LD seminar.)
