A Practice tells the stories of twelve school children, each working one-on-one with a tutor to resolve their learning problem. The ‘tutor’, a psychologist trained at Bank Street College of Education in The Clinical Teaching Model (by Selma Sapir), describes the trials and triumphs of therapeutic tutoring. The progression of the tutor over twenty plus years parallels the growing attention to learning disabilities in the 1980s and ’90s. New theories and teaching methods inspired the different approach this tutor took in remedial tutoring. Eventually she brought her approach to Horace Mann Middle School, where it became the foundation of their program for learning disabled children.
