A Guide for the Instruction and Training of the Profoundly Retarded and Severely Multi-Handicapped Child.
Ball, Thomas, Ed.
The guide is intended for teachers of profoundly retarded and severely multiply handicapped children in California. It suggests relevant methodologies and media for such children as well as sample curricula for use in Development Centers for Handicapped Minors and state and private institutions. The major portion of the document consists of instructional plans which provide examples of activities and programs in specific curriculum areas and which are intended as guides to curriculum planning. Major areas covered are ambulation, stimulation, communication, self help skills, imitation, and behavior problems (self destructive behavior, aggression, and blindism). Each instructional plan states objectives, prerequisites, instructional methods, and learning activities, and is followed by a critical commentary identifying strong points and difficulties perceived in the plan. A final section discusses theoretical considerations involved in a philosophy of curriculum planning for Development Centers. (KW)
