A Proposed Program of Personal Adjustment for Visually Handicapped Pupils.
Levine, Helen G.
A proposal for a personal adjustment program for visually handicapped students is described to contain three primary components: the ongoing curriculum which encourages techniques of modification and application of the presently existing regular curriculum to the needs of the blind; the extended school program which provides out-of-school services as an additional, compensatory aid to the handicapped children; and a summer session to be offered throughout the high school years. Personnel needs are suggested to include braille teachers, mobility instructors, the classroom teacher of a specialized subject who will integrate the visually handicapped into the regular classroom, and personal adjustment teachers. Suggestions of teacher roles and qualifications, and the development of summer teaching training institutes are noted. Activities and financial implications of the three primary components of the program are discussed. General recommendations for program policy and further study are enumerated. (RD)
