An Early Childhood Curriculum for Multiply Handicapped Children.
Schattner, Regina
The guide for understanding the multidimensional educational problems of multiply handicapped children and for developing an appropriate curriculum and setting is addressed to teachers. Methods, materials, and a curriculum for working with young (ages 4-9 years) multiply handicapped children are presented. The program includes an enriched language program to prepare the children who will go on to academic learning in a school setting. The curriculum can be adapted for children with motor and sensory defects, mental retardation, or emotional disturbance. Discussed are the identification and early years of the multiply handicapped; the ideal physical plant and special education classroom; the professional staff and teacher-parent cooperation; and an educational program which is a compilation of techniques used with multiply handicapped children (blind-cerebral palsied, mentally retarded-emotionally disturbed) in two different schools. Ages and grouping, physical development, play, creative activities, language development, introduction of tool subjects, and arithmetic are covered, with appropriate activities and materials indicated. The partially sighted child and the blind child are treated in two separate chapters. (KW)
