This month the section begins with a review of Project LIFE which is a series of programs using a novel teaching machine. Head Start teachers and those with many young learning disability children would do well to look into this series. The psychologists (and others) among our readers will be interested in Dr. Donald Holmes' refreshing book Psychotherapy. It is intended for anyone interested in the topic and I found it excellent. Those interested in the adolescent with learning disabilities (that includes almost all of us) will read my review of The Educator's Enigma with close attention. There is room for much more research on adolescents with learning disabilities and how best to treat them. Also reviewed are Specific Helps for Specific Learning Disabilities, a book which suggests remedial activities for specific perceptual deficits, and the Sensory Programmer kit of 10 tasks to help children in achieving readiness in various perceptual and motor skills. For my own contribution this time I have chosen the topic of auditory closure. If I was asked to name one language processing deficit which was most often found in learning disability children I would be hard put to decide between auditory closure and auditory sequencing memory. Coding would be a close third.
