Public Education for Children with Brain Dysfunction.
Rappaport, Sheldon R.
A foreword by William M. Cruickshank introduces a book designed to provide information on the problems of children with brain dysfunction and to furnish guidelines to habilitation. Subjects discussed are the status of education for these children, preparing the community for a school program, selection of school and preparation of the principal, teachers, and parents, and a conceptual model including child development as a framework for assessment and education. Recommendations of D.B. Harmon on environmental design, an example of educational programing, and tasks for the development of readiness are presented. Color, form, and utilization of instructional materials are described; also described are psychotherapy and the role of the teacher in behavior management, parent counseling, and the need for effective habilitation. A glossary of terms is included. (RP)
