The Modification of Educational Equipment and Curricula for Maximum Utilization by Physically Disabled Students. Final Report.
Yuker, Harold E.; Feldman, Martin A.
To provide information on educational modifications for physically disabled children, a review of over 800 documents was evaluated, extensive interviews were conducted, and correspondence was gathered. The information was compiled and evaluated by the Human Resources Center and presented in five monographs dealing with school design, educational equipment, transportation, staffing, and curriculum and instructional techniques for physically disabled students. Each discussion presents problems and suggests solutions. The conclusions of the total project were that dissemination of this collated information can result in better educational techniques; there is much creative thinking currently, but lack of communication hampers adoption of new techniques; and more surveys of information are needed concerning individual exceptionalities. Summaries of the monographs are provided. (JM)
