Missouri Schools for the Retarded, Title I Project. Program Enrichment for State Schools for Retarded.
Missouri Schools for the Retarded, Jefferson City.
Enrichment programs conducted in Missouri state schools for trainable mentally retarded (TMR) children under Title I funding in 1967 are evaluated. Charts give the progress of 153 TMR pupils in the physical fitness programs conducted in three schools while case histories indicate improvement of six children in a prekindergarten enrichment program. The progress of a video tape teaching project is mentioned and two examples of pilot filmstrips developed are given. Reports and case histories submitted by speech teachers who conducted oral communication programs for 105 multiply handicapped TMR children in five day schools are presented. Reported by charts and pupil progress reports are results from a 6-week summer school training program offered by training centers to 542 TMR children; twelve independent studies resulting from the summer program are included. An account is given of an inservice teacher institute on new trends in TMR curriculum development which involved 150 teachers and supervisors. Finally, case histories and teacher reports from two schools which have home school coordinators provide an evaluation of the services obtained to solve children's school and family problems. (SN)
