Cheatum, Billye Ann
This federally funded project's goals were to provide a competency-based training program that would enable Western Michigan University graduate and undergraduate students to meet Michigan's endorsement requirements for teaching physical education to handicapped individuals, and to provide direct services to handicapped children in the Kalamazoo (Michigan) Public School District and surrounding areas. The final report describes project accomplishments in terms of course offerings, numbers of students enrolled, practica experiences, and cooperative relationships. As a result of the project, 15 graduate students completed sufficient credits to receive full approval as teachers of physical education for handicapped individuals and 16 students had applied for approval. In addition, 210 children enrolled in the Special Physical Education Learning Laboratory were provided with assessment, prescription, and program implementation. Appendixes, which comprise over half of the report, include: brochures and forms, evaluation instruments, management plan, dissemination plan, Michigan competency requirements, and results of project evaluation by graduate students and by parents of children with disabilities.
