This study was initiated to determine the value of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities in identification, diagnosis, placement, and program development for children designated as Educationally Handicapped. Related to the problem were three basic questions: (1) Does the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities identify specific sensory modality deficiencies in Educationally Handicapped Children? (2) Do Educationally Handicapped boys differ from Educationally Handicapped girls in their sensory modal profiles? and (3) Are there differences between Educationally Handicapped boys who are performance oriented on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children and Educationally handicapped boys who are verbally oriented on the Wechsler Scale in their sensory modal abilities?
