The Nature of Programs Serving Preschool Handicapped Children in North Dakota. No. 15.
Dell, Amy Glasser
Fifty-one surveys designed to gather qualitative information on preschool programs in North Dakota were completed and returned by preschool teachers. Questionnaires focused on five major topics: population served, staff, parent involvement, program curriculum, and teacher and program needs. Results indicate that many teachers served fewer than 10 students; the majority of preschool programs did not include nonhandicapped students; few programs served children below age 3; support staff was providing services directly to children more frequently than through teacher consultation; speech/language therapy was the most frequently cited support service; parents were involved in their child's education; and a behavioral teaching style was much in evidence.
