ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS FOR IDENTIFYING AND PROGRAMING FOR THE MINIMALLY BRAIN-INJURED AND/OR PERCEPTUALLY HANDICAPPED CHILD IN THE EDUCATIVE PROCESS.
MCGAHAN, F.E.
THE PROTOCOL FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE PERCEPTUALLY HANDICAPPED AND/OR MINIMALLY BRAIN-INJURED CHILD IN THE GALENA PARK SCHOOLS IS HEREIN DESCRIBED. SUCH CHILDREN USUALLY BEHAVE WITH A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF HYPERACTIVITY, DISSOCIATION, AND HAVE A SHORT ATTENTION SPAN. SPECIFIC DATA (INCLUDING MEDICAL HISTORY, PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS RESULTS, SCHOOL HISTORY, THE RECORD OF THE PLACEMENT COMMITTEE DECISION, AND THE PARENT REQUEST FOR THE CHILD'S PLACEMENT IN THESE CLASSES) MUST BE PRESENT BEFORE A CHILD CAN BE PLACED IN A CLASS. EFFORT IS MADE TO DETECT CHILDREN EARLY VIA AN ANNUAL PRESCHOOL CLINIC. SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT AND INSTRUCTIONAL AIDS ARE PROVIDED TO PRESENT THE BEST POSSIBLE LEARNING SITUATION. INSTRUCTION IS BOTH INDIVIDUAL AND IN SMALL GROUPS WITH THE GOAL OF PLACING THE CHILD IN A REGULAR CLASSROOM AS SOON AS HE IS ABLE TO PERFORM ADEQUATELY. TEACHING METHODS EMPLOYED ARE THOSE RECOMMENDED BY LEADERS IN THE FIELD AS WELL AS ONES DEVELOPED BY INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTORS. PROGNOSIS FOR PLACING THE PUPILS IN REGULAR CLASSES IS GOOD AT ABOUT 50 PERCENT LEVEL. TEACHER AND PARENT CONSULTATIONS ARE HELD SEVERAL TIMES PER YEAR, CONSULTATION INCLUDES EXPLANATION OF THE GRADING PROCEDURES. RESULTS OF THE PROGRAM ARE REPORTED TO BE SATISFACTORY.
