Orientation and Mobility for Multiply Handicapped Blind Children.
Wood, Thomas A.
A research project was conducted to investigate sensory, concept, and locomotion skills in severely multiply handicapped children. The project involved the development of evaluation and teaching materials to be utilized by classroom teachers and paraprofessionals with multi-handicapped children with severe visual deficits. The programed instructional system consisted of a criterion referenced assessment instrument and corresponding programed instruction training package. The content of the intervention system included basic motor, sensory, concept, and basic protective mobility skills. Results of a multi-state validation study using 60 multiply handicapped blind children (5 to 13 years old) indicated that Ss using the intervention system made significant progress on all skill areas included in the materials.
