The Trainable Mentally Handicapped Student in the Regular Classroom.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
Guidelines are provided for integrating the trainable mentally handicapped (TMH) student into the regular classroom in the province of Alberta, Canada. Normalization and integration are explained with regard to the unique commitment undertaken in developing an integrated program for TMH students. Outlined are goals of the integrated program, such as access to nonhandicapped peer models. Three types of integration are noted, ranging from regular class placement to special class placement in a regular school. Briefly explained are roles of people involved in an integrated program, including the special and regular teacher and administrators. Seven suggestions are given for successful development of an integrated program; this is followed by a checklist for the regular classroom teacher's self-preparation, and 10 suggestions for classroom management (e.g., give the student positive directions rather than telling him what not to do). A short reference list is provided. (MC)
