ABSTRACT
This article focuses on various developments related to the education of learning disabled. A prereading program to prevent reading failure has been developed by the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Cognitive Learning and will be published by Encyclopedia Britannica Corp. this fall. The program teaches kindergarten children five basic skills considered essential for learning to read effectively. These skills--three visual and two sound skills-had been identified by the Center's research. Individualized instruction is basic to the program. A new Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC), standardized on a census- representative sample including minority group children, has recently been published. The Psychological Corporation is releasing the revised version of the WISC after more than 3 years of experimental tryouts, field testing, and statistical analyses. In revising the content of this widely-used individual mental ability examination, the author and the publisher's research staff carefully considered psychologists' questions and comments.
