Special Alternatives: A Learning System for Generating Unique Solutions to Problems of Special Education in Integrated Settings.
Fruehling, Royal; And Others
The booklet describes an activity designed to help nonhandicapped persons understand and develop solutions to problematic situations faced by mentally and physically handicapped students, their parents, and school personnel. The assumption is made that integration is desirable, and the issue therefore becomes not whether children with disabilities shall be integrated, but what will be the outcomes of that integration. The booklet presents 11 different problem categories with six problems in each. Categories include: uses for an object, list of items in a category, possible consequences of non-social and social antecedents, number of things fitting certain constraints (social and nonsocial), number of solutions for a social and nonsocial problem, antecedents of a consequence (nonsocial), behaviorals to achieve a social outcome, and antecedents of a social consequence. Participants work on the problems in teams and are encouraged to focus upon process as well as content. (CL)
