Staff Training on a State-Wide Basis. Volume II, Number I.
Presented is the script for two slide showings on staff orientation, training, and role in early childhood educational programs for aurally handicapped children in Minnesota. The first slide presentation consists of 63 slide commentaries on implementation and evaluation of the Minnesota staff training program. Representative commentaries concern intervention on the family and school levels, parent participation, individually prescriptive oral and aural programs, use of aides in stimulation of residual hearing, inductive approach to learning, and classes for deaf blind children. The second presentation contains 47 slide commentaries on the coordination of a statewide staff training program and is designed for three audiences of professionals and nonprofessionals serving the preschool child and his parents, parents, and allied resource specialists in health, education, and welfare. Selected slide commentaries focus on various educational projects and conferences for concerned adults, state meeting conference, parent counseling techniques, and sequential program of auditory training. An informal evaluation of the staff training program indicates that the program has been influential in increasing professional and public interest and action in early childhood education programs for the aurally handicapped.
