Exceptional Children Conference Papers: Education of the Educable and Trainable Mentally Handicapped.
Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
Thirteen conference papers focus on the education of educable (EMR) and trainable (TMR) mentally retarded children. Topics include comparisons of development of reasoning, moral judgment, moral conduct, and long term memory in normals and retardates. Other papers examine use of an interactive unit in teaching arithmetic, verbal information processing of EMRs on quantitative verbal problems, application of learning theory to evaluation of language development, and use of music and social reinforcement to increase group attending behavior. One paper describes a Down's Syndrome preschool program and four papers describe various aspects of the TMR program in Roanoke County, Virginia (overview, curriculum, use of music, and use of paraprofessionals).
