Strategies for the Implementation of Technical Aids with Physically Handicapped Children.
The paper describes Project TEACH (Technical Educational Aids for Children with Handicaps), a program at the Shrine School which is designed to meet the needs of physically handicapped and health impaired children. The program emphasizes the use of specialized equipment with the severely physically handicapped children at the school. The need for adequate physical management is stressed as is the importance of such aspects as proper seating and the use of powered equipment which is considered invaluable when it increases mobility. The communication needs of this population are discussed. The educational program is outlined, including the academic, vocational, and developmental aspects. It is explained that the project has five children in each of the three educational program areas who each receive individualized programs using equipment tailored to their special needs. (PHR)
