Bradtke, Louise M.; And Others
Described is a preservice training program for staff members working with young, multiply handicapped, profoundly or severely mentally retarded children in an institutional setting. The training program, which emphasizes concrete and practical experiences, is intended to develop appropriate attitudes and technical competencies of both professional and nonprofessional staff members. Goals include studying the children to see how they function in relation to themselves, to others, to stimuli, and to activities, and to develop staff proficiency in such activities as recording behaviors, writing observations, designing materials, and writing activity cards. The 5-week schedule of training activities is detailed. Also included is an employee performance evaluation form. (KW)
