Special Educator's Consultation Handbook. Second Edition.
This book is written primarily for special educators who offer resource and consultation support for students with mild handicaps and students at risk for school failure. Examples of consultation projects implemented and evaluated in the field are used to illustrate principles of effective consultation. Suggestions and guidelines are provided for performing classroom and curriculum-based assessments, implementing classroom-based instructional and management systems, and generating successful student outcomes through effective collaborative consultative support. Specific types of consulting projects addressed include: behavior and academic problems solved in a resource setting and then systematically implemented in regular classes; behavior and academic problems solved within the general education classroom; home tutoring and child management projects implemented by parents, consulting teachers and classroom teachers working together; and examples of different varieties of staff development provided for groups of teachers by consulting teachers.
