Computer Aided Instruction for Teacher Education (CAITE) is a system of individualized self-instructional materials designed to teach educators basic information, attitudes, and skills related to mainstreaming. This booklet is to be used with the first of 16 modules in the set. The module provides instruction on: (1) the target audience for the CAITE program; (2) current federal legislation for educating handicapped children; (3) definitions for "handicapped children" and "special education"; (4) reasons for early identification of children requiring special educational programs; (5) labeling of exceptional children; (6) cautions to be considered when labeling children; (7) differences between a "disability" and a "handicap"; and (8) use of the term "behavior" throughout the CAITE modules. Subsequent modules in the set deal with: testing, information gathering, individual differences, specific disabilities, and the intentions and implementation of goals identified in Public Law 94-142.
