A Summative Evaluation of Teaching the Young Handicapped Child: Spring 1978.
Daugherty, Deborah; Mertens, Donna M.
This report documents the second delivery of "Teaching the Young Handicapped Child: An Overview," an inservice course on mainstreaming for teachers of children from three to eight years of age, which was developed by the Appalachian Education Satellite Program (AESP) and Project PUSH (Parents Understanding Student Handicaps) in response to the passage of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (PL 94-142). Designed primarily to reach teachers in the rural areas of Appalachia, the course consisted of five basic components: videotaped programs, live interactive seminars, in-class activities, practicum, and printed ancillary materials. Some of the activities and materials were modified on the basis of evaluation data from the first delivery of the course in the fall of 1977. The 270 participants in this revised course were located in 34 sites throughout the Appalachian region. (RAO)
