Course on the Education of the Young Child with Special Needs (September 27 - November 19, 1993). Report.
Golda Meir Mount Carmel International Training Centre, Haifa (Israel).
This report outlines a course designed to provide teacher educators and supervisors, mostly from developing nations, with information about the education of children with specific learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and attention deficit disorder) in mainstream settings. The majority of the participants were teacher trainers, administrators, curriculum planners, and teachers in their home countries. The course examined developmental profiles of children with specific disabilities, primary intervention and care, screening tools, and alternative teaching techniques. Course material was presented through lectures, workshops, classroom observations, and field trips, with course participants writing a project proposal on a topic which they intended to implement upon their return home. The report discusses the planning and preparation of the course, course content and procedures, social and cultural activities provided for the participants, and accommodations provided to the participants. Three appendixes provide a list of course participants, a copy of the course program, and evaluation comments of the participants. (MDM)
