Habilitation of Rural Educable Mentally Retarded Adolescents: A Handbook for Educators. Final Report.
Copple, C. Rockne; And Others
A study was made of 20 rural high schools with enrollments of less than 110 and with an educable mentally handicapped student currently enrolled. Administrators, counselors, and educable students, and their parents were interviewed to determine provisions made for these students. In addition, the interviewers were concerned with what these people thought could be included in the school curriculum. These current and conceivable practices were submitted to six special education experts who rated th them as to suitability. Each of the experts in turn composed a list of suggested practices in the areas of intellectual, social, emotional, moral, physical, and occupational development. These lists were submitted to parents who rated them on the basis of feasibility. (Author)
