PEECH [A Program for Early Education of Children with Handicaps] Outreach. Final Report, 1980-81.
Cadman, Lois A., Comp.; And Others
The final 1980-81 report of Project PEECH (Program for Early Education of Children with Handicaps) Outreach provided technical assistance to Texas sites replicating the PEECH model. The model emphasizes training teachers to train parents to continue the individualized educational program activities with their mild to severely handicapped children in the home environment. An outlined curriculum design of the four major goals and the planned objectives is presented. The four goals are: (1) to present the PEECH model to target agency participants, (2) to provide training and onsite consultative assistance to staff in a minimum of 10 replication sites, (3) to provide inservice training and ongoing consultative assistance to the demonstration sites within the area, and (4) to provide for dissemination of information and evaluation of the program. Appended are a Texas map showing the outreach sites, the PEECH model program observation scale, the texts of sample technical assistance agreements, a summary of PEECH Outreach training and testing results for the year, site visit reports, a listing of inservice training sessions, and pre-post evaluation data of target children in the program.
