The fifth of seven modules designed for teachers, supervisors, and other professionals working with young (birth to age 3) handicapped children presents resources for program planning and curriculum selection. Program considerations and decisions are introduced, and distinctions between the terms "program" and "curriculum" are set forth. The bulk of the document is composed of summaries of model preschool programs funded under the Handicapped Children's Early Education Program. Summaries include information on project name and address, target population, measurement tools, and products projected. A section on curriculum considerations follows with charts on specific motor, cognitive, speech and language, self-help, and social emotional behaviors for age ranges from birth to 6 years. Pre-academic skills are briefly listed. Criteria for selecting curricula are discussed, and approximately 30 examples of commercially available curricula are described in terms of purpose, level, format, scoring, prescription, special features, price and publisher. An annotated bibliography of books and journal articles concludes the document. (CL)
