Gill, Wanda E.
The report reviews the implementation of computer programs in special education in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) and describes specific applications at the Prospect Learning Center, a special elementary school for moderately to severely learning disabled students. Goals for a 3-year project on computers in DCPS are listed. A brief overview of the goals and objectives of the Prospect Learning Center is followed by extensive samples of handouts distributed by the school on learning disabilities and Individualized Education Programs as well as the program instructional guide. The Center's computer program for school year 1984-85 is detailed in terms of four model components (awareness development, instruction, staff development, and parents) and the operational plan. Also included are a software review checklist, a journal review checklist, and bibliographies. (CL)
