The Special Child: Student Laboratory Manual.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
This laboratory manual was designed for use by students in postsecondary courses that prepare them to be child caregivers or directors. The workbook is especially useful for students in lecture-laboratory courses on mainstreaming children with special needs into regular child care settings. This manual, designed as a laboratory experience guide and workbook, is written at a 10th-grade reading level. The format permits students to answer questions and make notes directly in the manual. The manual is organized into six units that correspond with the units in the Instructor's Guide. The units cover the following topics: understanding mainstreaming, the caregiver's role in screening and assessment, understanding special needs, promoting positive interactions, learning in the mainstreamed child care program, and supporting parents. Each unit begins with performance objectives. The objectives correspond with the unit objectives in the Instructor's Guide. An overview introduces basic concepts related to the unit topic. Suggested readings for indepth study are given at the end of the overview. Laboratory experiences in each unit include both observation and participation assignments. The learning objectives for each experience are designed to help students achieve one or more of the performance objectives. Participation evaluation forms are included for the instructor's use in evaluating a student's performance in the laboratory. Other components of the student laboratory manual include guidelines for successful laboratory experiences, a glossary, and a 16-item bibliography. (KC)
