The Effects of Integrating Young Severely Handicapped Children Into Regular Preschool Headstart and Child Development Program/s. Year II.
Shannon, R. Dean
The document, most of which consists of appendixes and tables, reports on a study to evaluate the effectiveness of a program in which 35 severely handicapped children (ages 3-14 years) were integrated into regular preschool headstart and child development programs and were compared with a control group of similar but non-integrated students. Changes in student performance and in the attitudes of students, teachers, and parents were measured. Among the findings were that in most cases there were no significant differences between integrated and nonintegrated students, but that staff reactions were clearly in favor of the project. Appended are various evaluation instruments and project-developed materials, and 20 brief case studies. (DLS)
