Training Manual for School Bus Drivers Transporting the Handicapped. [A Resource Manual for the Development and Evaluation of Special Programs for Exceptional Students, Volume IV-A].
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Students.
One of a series designed to help Florida school districts provide special programs for exceptional children, the training packet is intended to be used in a 2-day training session for school bus drivers who transport handicapped students. The manual includes a brief introduction to five disability areas (physical impairments, visual impairments, hearing impairments, mental retardation, emotional handicaps) and implications of each for school bus management. In addition, five other topics are addressed: communication with families; medical aspects of disabilities; legal issues of school bus drivers; management of seizures; and lifting, carrying, and transferring the handicapped student. Each topic includes instructions for conducting the training session and many also provide a list of references on the topic. (CL)
