COOPERATIVE PROGRAM OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION AND SPECIAL EDUCATION IN THE WINSTON-SALEM/FORSYTH COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
CAUDLE, A.B.; POPE, HAROLD J.
THE CENTRAL EDUCATION REHABILITATION CENTER IS A COOPERATIVE PROGRAM, JOINTLY SPONSORED BY THE DIVISION OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION AND THE WINSTON-SALEM/FORSYTH COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM, FOR JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH AGE MENTAL RETARDATES WHOSE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT FALLS IN THE RANGE OF 60-84. THE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO OFFER THE STUDENT A SCHOLASTIC AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM GEARED TO HIS LEVEL. STUDENTS ARE TESTED BEFORE BEING REFERRED TO THE CENTER. AFTER INITIAL BRIEFING AND COUNSELING, THEY ARE GROUPED ACCORDING TO THEIR AGES AND TAUGHT AT THEIR LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT. THE COURSES OF STUDY, JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH, ARE DISCUSSED. GROUPING STUDENTS BY AGE ACCORDING TO THEIR PEERS AND LETTING THEM WORK ON THEIR OWN LEVEL SEEMS TO ELIMINATE MANY PROBLEMS. INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION AND SMALL GROUPS HAVE GIVEN STUDENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW IN LEARNING ABILITY BEYOND THEIR NORMAL EXPECTATIONS. A GRADING SYSTEM WAS DEVISED TO MEET THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS AND THE PROGRAM. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE RETARDATE IS SLOW IN LEARNING BUT NOT DIFFERENT IN OTHER RESPECTS FROM OTHER STUDENTS HIS AGE. PROJECT WORKERS FEEL THAT THE PROGRAM IS A SUCCESS. A COOPERATIVE PROGRAM SIMILAR TO THIS ONE IS RECOMMENDED. THE APPENDIX, WHICH CONSTITUTES HALF THE REPORT, INCLUDES A LIST OF EQUIPMENT AND SAMPLES OF THE EVALUATION TOOLS USED IN THE PROGRAM. (IM)
