Driver Education Curriculum Guide.
Brum, Herbert D.; And Others
Intended for driver education instructors in Ohio, the guide is designed to acquaint teachers with special characteristics, capacities, and needs of the handicapped student population and to provide resources, information, and ideas for meeting those special needs. An introductory section discusses the purpose and use of the curriculum. Section 2 offers code excerpts and explanations of pertinent legislation including Ohio's Revised Code (ORC) 3301.17, Rule 3301-81-01, P.L. 93-513 (Section 504), P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act), ORC 4503.105, ORC 4511.69, ORC 4507.08, ORC 4507.14, and ORC 4507.161. Section 3, titled "Assessment," deals with measures for determining readiness for driver education (sample forms are included). Discussed in Section 4 are the characteristics of mildly mentally handicapped learners, and what to do about them, additional classroom strategies, and scheduling approaches (including advantages and disadvantages of each). Section 5 suggests approaches to teaching the visually and hearing impaired, while Section 6 addresses physical handicaps. Section 7 briefly describes the procedures necessary for handicapped students to obtain a driver's license. A final section of appendixes contains a bibliography, a list of audiovisual materials for the instructor, and a list of manufacturers of adaptive controls. (SBH)
