Incorporating Frostig and Kephart Principles in Curriculum for Mentally Handicapped.
Rogers, Agnes L.
Educable mentally handicapped children, having perceptual retardation and immaturity in common, are taught through a combination of perceptual development programs, including the Frostig and Kephart approaches. Using basic learning principles as guidelines, instruction combines diagnostic and prescriptive teaching in individual instruction. Success of perceptual materials with these children, criticisms of teacher misuse of the materials, and specific classroom methods are described. The conclusion is reached that if teachers are to develop social and vocational competencies in mentally handicapped students they should study perceptual programs in order to be able to instill the sensory approach of such materials in the classroom. References are included. (MD)
