Chapel Hill Services to the Gifted Handicapped. A Project Summary.
Leonard, Judith E.
The monograph reviews the first 2 years of a model program to identify gifted-handicapped and gifted-disadvantaged children (2 1/2-6 years old) and to provide them with a preschool program that would offer a balance between stimulating enrichment activities and therapy and remediation in developmental areas, delayed because of specific modality deficits or limited environmental experiences. Following a project overview are sections which address the following components: need for services; guidelines and inservice training for identification; two studies including "Education and the Gifted-Handicapped Child" by A. Raper, et al and "Parents and the Gifted-Handicapped Child" by D. Cansler; delivery of services; the curriculum model; dissemination, training, and outreach; staff development; the family program; results of the 1975-77 and 1977-78 evaluations; and resources. Appendixes, which make up a large portion of the document, include referral forms, a copy of the Gifted-Handicapped Project Parent Manual, program evaluation forms, a sample workshop agenda, and a copy of the Parent Inventory Scales.
