Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 1974-THE LETHMIOQE HERALD-18 Hillcrest sewer plans progressing rapidly Pheasant hideout This irrigation ditch is one of many tramped by pheasant hunters during the long weekend, as resident pheasant hunting opened. Pheasants often spend the midday hours resting in moist, brushy areas where there is a good deal of cover.' Extra programs offered in some county schools By GEOFF TAGG Special Correspondent Thanks to increased government grants from the province's Educational Opportunities Fund, a number of special programs'are being offered in Forty Mile County schools this year. These programs will assist pupils and older students with special learning problems that educators feel can be over- come The program has been ex- panded to include almost all of the schools in the county. Superintendent of schools Clifford EUe says two types of youngsters will benefit from the programs: The "learning disabled" child one with Career DRIVER SALESMAN FRONT END SALESMAN SERVICO CENTRE 33161st Company Benefit Program On the Job Training Apply in Person average or above average intelligence who is achieving at a level two or more years below his mental age in language arts and mathematics; and the child classified as "educable men- tally those who generally learn at a much slower rate than their peers and are less capable of abstract reasoning than others. The "learning disabled" may be under achievers because of several things. The program objectives are threefold: To provide for motivation and the improve- ment of the child's self concept through individual attention, high interest materials and the experience of success in what he is doing; To keep special program students integrated with their peers as much as possible while at the same time cater- ing to their specific needs: To assist the regular classroom teacher in modify- ing expectations about the performance of the particular child and make appropriate adjustments to programs and teaching methods to suit the child's needs. The program aims to help the "learning disabled child" compensate for or to over- come the disability which is contributing to his poor per- "formance. This disability might be poor vocabulary, weak auditory or visual dis- crimination, poor hand eye co ordination or weak basic mathematic facts. The teachers design special programs for the child, work- ing on of specific weaknesses.

Esttti Coaldate Phono 345-3534 bring the pupil's level of achievement in line with the level of ability of which he is capable. The program is designed to give "educable mentally retarded" students basic skills in reading, mathematics, oral and written language. This is done by providing instruction at an appropiate level and rate. The emphasis is strongly on developing those skills which will be essential to the person in later life. Resource teachers assist classroom teachers to meet the needs of students with these learning problems. These students are still the responsibility of the regular teacher. No attempt is made to segregate these youngsters or to treat them in any way as "different" from their fellow students. The resource teachers work with small groups, or in- dividuals as time allows. Other students who may be experiencing learning or behavioral problems may also work with the resource people at times. They may leave their regular classes for this. They are not required to make up the lessons they miss. This would place an unnecessary burden on both student and teacher which could be interpreted as punitive. The expectations of the student in question are modified. These programs are still in their infancy. But there is every indication they are progressing satisfactorily. Teachers are meeting to plan programs, evaluate current training, exchange in- formation and share problems.
