Oklahoma Curriculum Guide for Teaching Driver Education to the Handicapped.
This booklet is intended to aid driver education instructors and supervisors to develop a program of driver education for physically or mentally handicapped persons. The guide is organized in five sections. The first section introduces the concept of driver education for the handicapped, and relates its history, philosophy, objectives for a program, psychological factors affecting driving behavior in the disabled, and numbers of children with various types of disabilities in the United States. In the second section, the organization and administration of driver education programs in Oklahoma is explained, including reimbursement for school districts, special equipment needed for the disabled, and processes for identifying special students. The third section of the booklet covers instructional planning, including special tasks and techniques (behavioral objectives), techniques for assisting the mentally handicapped, and case records of driver instruction of a paraplegic and a mentally retarded student. The fourth and fifth sections discuss evaluation of students after they have passed their driver's license examination and provide a bibliography of print and audiovisual materials. (KC)
