Project Run: Early Education Assessment/Curriculum for the Severely/Profoundly Multiply Handicapped. Test Administration and Protocol Book.
Boswell, Kathy S.; And Others
Intended for use with severely and profoundly multiply handicapped children within the 0-48 month developmental age range, the manual is designed for planning and implementing an educational treatment program in the areas of auditory discrimination, communication, gross motor, and visual/fine motor skills. The format of the Assessment/Curriculum is designed to coordinate assessment, individualized education program development, and program implementation. The program is organized into long term behavioral objectives for each area which are subdivided into sequential short term objectives (test items and implementation objectives). A coding system is used to identify long and short term objectives according to developmental areas and skill level. Master copies of the forms necessary to use the data based approach to program planning are provided for photocopying. The guide includes a step-by-step explanation of procedures and techniques, sample forms representing illustrations for their use, and a materials list identifying items necessary for assessment and program implementation. All objectives are listed in the section entitled "Test Items." The section on "Procedures" provides brief guidelines for assessment of test items and general guidelines for a curriculum to develop the target skills. (DB)
