Albuquerque Special Preschool, NM.
This final report documents the accomplishments and activities of the Albuquerque Integration Model (AIM) Outreach Project, designed to stimulate the awareness of parents and health care and education professionals regarding serving young handicapped children in settings which include their nonhandicapped peers. Progress in 14 project objectives is recounted. Research objectives are considered, including a survey of attitudes toward the handicapped; an instrument for making classroom placement decisions (both instruments are presented); analysis of the developmental progress of children enrolled in toddlers', special needs, and integrated classrooms; and examination of the placement process. Extensive appended materials include an agenda for an early childhood special education outreach fair, a parent handbook on integration (Spanish, English, and Native American versions), sample copies of the project newsletter, and a packet for volunteers.
