Vails, Lavolia W.; And Others
Five experimental programs in the District of Columbia, which were implemented in 1968-69 and have served 116 handicapped children, are evaluated. The programs provided individualized instruction for aphasic, rubella, severely mentally retarded, seriously emotionally handicapped, and multiply handicapped children. A summary and a consultant's detailed evaluation of each program are included. The extent to which programs met their objectives, strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures are examined, and recommendations offered. Descriptive statistical data is included. Programs concentrated upon the development of linguistic and conceptual ability for aphasics, behavior modification principles in the emotionally handicapped program, the training of adaptive behaviors for the mentally retarded, and comprehensive education for the multiply handicapped deaf and the rubella children.
