Comprehensive Service Delivery Training: Multi-handicapped, Visually Impaired Children. Final Report.
Gordon, Peter; Ashcroft, S. C.
The final report analyzes the achievements of Project SERVE, a training program for teachers of multiply handicapped/visually impaired students. The two basic objectives were (1) to prepare teachers who have demonstrated both generic teaching competencies as well as skills related to the target population; and (2) to produce teachers who have experience in a wide range of service delivery systems. The first section of the report describes the project's objectives, core training procedures, and specific practica and seminars. A second section evaluates the project's educational significance in such terms as a summary of student encounters in field settings, basic roles graduates are prepared to fill, number of personnel prepared, and contributions to research. Three final sections address project design, program evaluation, and the project's inservice component. Seven appendixes comprise nearly one half the document, and include information on competency goals, core didactics, and field application requirements. (CL)
