The Occupational Implications of Learning Patterns

pp. 240—244

The case of Phil Smith illustrates how important it is for the school psychologist to consider the relative strengths and weaknesses in information processing for a learning disabled student who is working in a vocational education program. Phil was first introduced to the psychologist by the school counselor who said, “We've been talking about Phil’s problems with his work-study program. He’s having trouble understanding just what is expected of him. He also tells me that he used to be in a class for learning disabled students. Since I can’t find any specific information concerning his learning pattern in his cumulative record, would you have time to work with him to see where he is now?” An appointment was scheduled for the next day since the look on Phil’s face conveyed a feeling of urgency.
