Assessment of the Training Needs of Educators of the Severely and Profoundly Retarded.
Wolf, Judith G.
Forty-eight administrators and 477 teachers of severely and profoundly retarded students completed questionnaires regarding inservice training priorities. Questionnaire items related to participant biographics, knowledge, and skill produced a list of 24 training priorities, including resources for planning, behavior intervention techniques, medications, individual education plan, sequencing of instruction, diagnostic/prescriptive teaching, and knowledge of specific handicapping conditions. Analysis of the list suggested that curriculum and instruction and behavior management were the top priority broad training areas. (CL)
