The purpose of this study was to develop a Learning Preference Inventory (LPI) which reflects a child's unique learning style. This LPI will assist educators to individualize educational programs of handicapped children as mandated by Public Law 94-142.
The investigative method used to construct this essay was a literature review which focused on the importance of selected social-environmental variables in relation to learning style.
Analysis of the literature review revealed that the environment plays a crucial role in the learning process, specifically, the learning style preference.
The outcome of this study was the development of a Learning Preference Inventory (LPI) based on a need for a viable instrument to assess the learning environment. The LPI will inform educators of the child's preference for instructional procedures, presentations, and interpersonal communication interactions.
