Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
Five papers from a 1979 conference designed to bring practitioners' results of current research and development in special education are presented. The first paper describes the importance of the prepared environment for mainstreaming handicapped children and reviews four areas of consideration: orientation, adaptation, boundaries, and design of specific activities. Communicating with parents of handicapped children is the focus of the second paper which addresses attitudes, feelings, and ways to involve parents. Developing, implementing, and transferring individualized education programs to classrooms are discussed in the third paper, while the fourth emphasizes the importance of the nature of communication between adult and child. A final paper considers prevention and intervention techniques for handling behavior problems with children. (CL)
