Gillespie, Jacquelyn; And Others
The report describes Project CASA, a program to develop and enhance career potential of physically and multiply handicapped children from three school districts in North Orange County (California). Sections include the following: background of Project CASA (needs assessment and related literature); goals and objectives (including the involvement of parents); project design (teachers from each of three schools participated in training sessions in group leadership); the advisory council (which provided input from community members); project activities (a color coded section which details the theme statement, teachers' roles, goals for teacher training, course outline, evaluation and teacher/facilitator training, and awareness exercises); data collection; data evaluation; a project statistical reporting form; problems encountered; conclusions and recommendations; dissemination activities; and references. Noted among findings is that self ratings by students indicated two thirds of students at all schools and in all age groups felt either "moderately satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their learning across five areas emphasized in group activities--thoughts, feelings and body sensations; relaxation; use of imagination; personal interests; and sharing with others. Appended are a sample invitation to parents and evaluation forms. (SB)
