Staff Training in a University Setting (With Emphasis on Behavior Modification). Volume III, Number 3.
Hayden, Alice H.
Presented are three scripts on training, orientation, and role of a model preschool staff, on building interpersonal competence in a preschool child, and on a model of staff training, orientation, and role in a university setting. The first script contains commentary for 80 slides on staff training for a model preschool mental retardation research and training center. Representative slides concern physical facilities, a field program operated in conjunction with a Head Start program, staff training process, instructional materials used, observation of children and recording of data, and program evaluation. The film script on building social skills in the preschool child focuses on three purposes of the pilot classroom for mentally handicapped children: to modify behaviors of those children who demonstrate behavior problems or learning disabilities, to provide a laboratory for training teachers who work with mentally handicapped children, and to provide a laboratory setting in which the relationship between a child's social behavior and his environmental influences can be studied. The third script on a staff training model in a university setting provides a brief description of the functions, multidisciplinary, administrative, instructional, staff training, and evaluation systems in the overall working model with mentally handicapped children.
