Learning Systems for Preschool Physically Handicapped Children: A Training Program. Volume II, Number 3.
Myers, William A.
The monograph discusses the establishment of a basic learning philosophy by staff involved in educating preschool physically handicapped children. Focused on as important topics to be considered in the formulation of a basic philosophy are communication systems and educational goals and procedures as they relate to all personnel involved. The establishment of sound educational teaching systems (procedures) is discussed within the context of learning theory. Hilgard (1956) is cited often relative to basic learning philosophy. Particular learning needs of the physically handicapped are pointed out. It is concluded that systems of communication, goal setting, teaching procedure, and specific characteristics of crippled children must be interwoven to design appropriate educational approaches. A chart is presented outlining a possible training approach for the education of teachers working with handicapped children. (KW)
