DEVELOPMENT OF A PROGRAM FOR THE RE-EDUCATION AND REHABILITATION OF EMOTIONALLY HANDICAPPED MALE ADOLESCENTS WITHIN A PUBLIC SCHOOL SETTING.
DEEM, MICHAEL A.; PORTER, WILLIAM R.
MAJOR OBJECTIVES OF THIS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WERE (1) TO CONTINUE DEVELOPING A PROTOTYPE SPECIAL CLASS PROGRAM FOR EMOTIONALLY HANDICAPPED PUPILS (18 MALE ADOLESCENTS), (2) TO DEVISE METHODS OF EVALUATION FOR THE PROGRAM, AND (3) TO IDENTIFY SIGNIFICANT VARIABLES FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND RESEARCH. IN PLANNING THE PROJECT DURING THE FIRST YEAR, FOUR PROBLEM AREAS HAD BEEN ISOLATED AND GENERAL METHODS OF ALLEVIATING EACH HAD BEEN PROPOSED--(1) DEVELOP A CLASSROOM PROGRAM CONSISTENT WITH THE LEARNING CHARACTERISTICS OF PUPILS IN THE PROGRAM, (2) INVOLVE A MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM, (3) PROVIDE FOR CONTINUOUS SUPERVISION AND SUPPORT, AND (4) DEVELOP A PROGRAM AROUND A SELF-CONTAINED UNIT FULLY INTEGRATED WITHIN A REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL WITH CONTINUOUS AND INCREASING PUPIL INTEGRATION. THE LAST GOAL WAS ATTAINED MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN THE OTHERS--HOWEVER, THE HOPE THAT GRADUAL INTEGRATION OF PUPILS INTO REGULAR CLASSES WOULD ALLOW SERVICE TO MORE PUPILS WAS NOT REALIZED. TEACHERS EXPRESSED A NEED FOR MORE TIME, NOT MORE PUPILS. (JC)
