PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN WHOSE BASIC EDUCATIONAL NEEDS REQUIRE SPECIALIZED ADDITIONAL ATTENTION AND SERVICES.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
IN THE PAST THE ECONOMY CONTAINED EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHOSE NEEDS WERE NOT MET BY THE SCHOOL, BUT TODAY NEW TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES OF PRODUCTION ARE ELIMINATING THIS CHOICE. SPECIAL PROGRAMS SUGGESTED HAVE TWO MAIN AREAS OF CONCERN, PREVENTIVE PROGRAMS WHICH RECOGNIZE SPECIAL NEEDS IN ADVANCE AND PROVIDE NECESSARY ASSISTANCE SO THAT CHILDREN CAN BECOME PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS, AND REMEDIAL PROGRAMS OF A CORRECTIVE NATURE FOR CHILDREN WHO DID NOT RECEIVE THE NECESSARY PREVENTIVE SERVICES OR DID NOT PROFIT FROM THEM. FIVE BROAD CATEGORIES OF SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS ARE DEFINED--THE NEEDS IN PROGRAMING AND PERSONNEL ARE DISCUSSED WHERE RELEVANT AND PAST AND FUTURE LEGISLATION, EITHER STATE OR FEDERAL, IS CONSIDERED. AREAS ARE--(1) SPECIAL EDUCATION, WHICH COVERS CHILDREN WHO ARE MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, OR EMOTIONALLY UNABLE TO PROFIT FROM THE REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAM, AND GIFTED CHILDREN IN THE TOP THREE TO FIVE PERCENT OF THE SCHOOL POPULATION, (2) PROGRAMS FOR THE EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED, (3) PROGRAMS FOR THE CHILDREN OF MIGRANT FARM WORKERS, (4) REMEDIAL PROGRAMS, PARTICULARLY IN READING, AND (5) PROGRAMS FOR SLOW LEARNERS, RELUCTANT LEARNERS, AND DROPOUTS. TWENTY-FOUR RECOMMENDATIONS ARE ADVANCE TO FACILITATE EXPANSION AND PROPER OPERATION. LOCAL EFFORT IS NEEDED IN ADDITION TO STATE AND FEDERAL PARTICIPATION. COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION WITH OTHER COMMUNITY AGENCIES SHOULD BE INCREASED AND SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKERS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO MAINTAIN LIAISON. EXPERIMENTATION IS NEEDED TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL OF APPROACHES WHICH INVOLVE WORKING WITH OR SUBSTITUTING FOR PARENTS. MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES SHOULD BE EXPANDED. IF POSSIBLE, REGIONAL DISTRICT PROGRAMS SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED. PILOT SCHOOLS SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED, AND STATE AND LOCAL FUNDS SHOULD BE ALLOCATED TO PROVIDE TEACHER TRAINING FOR THOSE WHO WORK WITH EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. COUNSELOR SERVICE SHOULD BE EXPANDED.
