By Marion Monroe | Go to book overview

PREFACE

This study would not be complete without an attempt to express my gratitude to the many persons and institutions who have had close contact and interest in the research.

The study was made possible by the Behavior Research Fund and the Institute for Juvenile Research. To Dr. Ernest Burgess, director of the Behavior Research Fund; to Dr. Herman Adler, former director of the Behavior Research Fund and the Institute for Juvenile Research; to Dr. Paul Schroeder, present director of the Institute; and to Mr. John C. Weigel, administrator of the Institute and of the Behavior Research Fund, I wish to express gratitude for administrative aid and valuable suggestions which have facilitated the research.

To the psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric social workers, and other members of the staff of the Institute for Juvenile Research I am indebted for co-operation and many helpful suggestions. My colleagues will recognize in many of the cases reported in this study the evidence of their contributions. To the psychologists, under the direction of Dr. Andrew Brown, I am indebted for the assistance in giving the battery of the diagnostic reading tests and for selection of cases. My assistants, Miss Helen Gibbons and Miss Laura Gundlach, should be especially mentioned for the large number of tests which they gave and followed through with remedial treatment, conferences with teachers, and re-examinations. They also made many helpful suggestions on the remedial devices. I am indebted to Dr. Luton Ackerson for constructive suggestions on statistical procedures.

Many institutions and persons other than the Institute for Juvenile Research and its staff have also contributed to the study. Miss Azile Reynolds, principal of Armstrong School, and Miss Mary Willard, principal of Kenwood School, Chicago, were most co-operative in giving permission to test the children of their schools who formed the group of controls. Dr. Grace E. Munson and the members of the Bureau of Child Study of the Chicago
