Erdman, Robert L.; And Others

The selection of children is explored in areas of screening methods, individual evaluations, implications of student characteristics, and criteria for placement in special classes. Also described are the organization of classes and related organizational problems along with the development of curriculum and program activities. Various programing approaches and organizational patterns provided include cooperative programs, contract services, intermediate units, itinerant personnel, summer programs, and work study programs. Appendixes contain listings of state associations for the retarded, the Special Education IMC/RMC Network, curriculum resources, resource texts, educational films, parent resources, suggested equipment and supplies, and sample forms to be used in special education programing.
