Stewart, Denise B.
The guide is intended to help Georgia educators develop curricula for students with mild to severe educational handicaps. Topics briefly addressed include: differing needs of secondary-aged handicapped students; accommodating the range of handicapping conditions; determining content, materials, instructional sequence and means of evaluating progress; assumptions of curriculum development for students with mild disabilities (e.g., the principles of normalization and individualization); the curriculum development process; considerations in developing curricula for students with severe or profound mental handicaps; transition from school to adult life; and instructional strategies. The major portion of the document consists of appendixes providing information on: resources; the core curriculum; student assessment; graduation requirements and credentials; vocational education; and rehabilitation services. The cooperative agreement between the Georgia Departments of Education and Human Resources is included. (DB)
