The Special Purpose Preschool for Children with Multiple Disabilities. Vol. 1, No. 10.
Steele, Nancy W.
The discussion of early childhood education for multiply handicapped preschoolers is intended for teachers and concerns certain aspects of educational practice basic to an effective and efficient preschool program and what teachers can do in planning to meet the needs of such children. Broad goals of a preschool program for the multiply handicapped are outlined and an organizational pattern for the program (i.e., scheduling of activities) suggested. Suggestions are also made concerning the planning of activities for both large and small groups. Discussion of individualized teaching focuses upon the determination of behavioral objectives, while discussion of parent involvement suggests ways for planning and initiating programs for parents. Covered are parent visits to school, conferences, progress reports, and parent groups. Attention is also given to the use of consultants, particularly for medical, psychological, and educational consultation, and to the role of research and relationship of researchers to practitioners.
