A Model for the Planning and Organisation of Work Preparation Facilities for the Mildly Intellectually Handicapped. [The Granville Project].
Ward, James; And Others
The paper describes a model for the planning and organization of work preparation facilities for the mildly retarded, and discusses the application of its modified systems approach at the Granville Work Preparation Centre in Australia. Components of the model discussed include the establishment of behavioral goals, the determination of instructional sequences and methods, the establishment of evaluation procedures, the determination of specific resource needs, the assembly of resources, the implementation of the program itself, and the achievement of terminal goals. Aspects of the Granville Center reviewed include the follow-up of students, the students' employment record, the realization of objectives, and the social competence of the students. (DLS)
