Identification, Referral and Treatment of the Exceptional Child in a Rural Area.
Williams, Russell A.
A referral system was developed to facilitate the work of a psychologist from a regional center in a rural area. Training in identifying behavioral characteristics of exceptional children was given to professionals and to lay persons, including parents. As a result, referrals increased 8%, with student, parent, and teacher referrals increasing and principals and regional center staff referrals decreasing. Also, a standard referral form was developed. Treatment provided included behavior modification, group and individual therapy, and family counseling. (JD)
