Early ID/Intervention equals Education Foppery or Promise. Ontario Ministry of Education Memorandum 78-79: 15.
Posno, T. Ron
Problems in and guidelines for developing an early identification/intervention program for handicapped students are discussed. The author cautions that appropriate education should first be based upon the child's learning process, and that ongoing review should replace single stage identification procedures. Problems are listed for consideration in the areas of basic medical/social data, labeling, resources, and interventions. The early identification model currently used in London (Ontario) is reviewed and its apparent effectiveness noted. Sample forms used in London are included. (CL)
