Home Economics Special Needs Activity Guide.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Home Economics Education Section.
The purpose of this activity guide is to aid the home economics teacher to teach more successfully life and employment skills to special needs students. It offers suggestions for the home economics teacher with handicapped students to use to adapt teaching materials and/or facilities sufficiently to meet the goals of these special students. The guide is divided into four parts. The first part generalizes considerations for special needs students, delineates the objectives of the South Carolina Department of Education, and suggests strategies for development of Individualized Educational Plans. The second section describes the characteristics of various handicapping conditions (visual impairments; hearing impairments; speech impairments; learning disabilities; physical handicaps; educable, trainable, and profound mental handicaps; and emotional handicaps) and teaching/learning strategies to be used with students with these conditions. In the third section, activities are suggested for teaching special needs students skills in the following areas: child development, consumer education, clothing, grooming, nutrition and food use, self-concept, and careers. The fourth section lists resource persons, agencies, companies, and resource books. (KC)
