Remediation, Therapy, and the Learning-Disabled Child
Thus, man’s brain shapes freedom. Through ever more effective innovations in the rules for social interaction, man’s brain frees him from fear. Through ever improving methods of production and distribution, man’s brain frees him from want. Through euer growing powers to perceive and plan, man’s brain frees him for love and fun.
Man’s brain does this and always has. We share the promise that it always will, though slowly and by steps with pain. For that is how we learn.
Karl H. Pribram (1964)
In remediation planning, we must recognize the ways in which the learning disability influences the child’s pattern of motivation, not only the ways in which motivational factors might be influential in complicating the effects of the learning disability. This is the essence of the psychoneurologic approach to intervention.
Helmer R. Myklebust (1975a)
