Exceptional Children Conference Papers: Teacher Training and Professional Responsibilities.
Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
Teacher training and professional responsibilities in special education are the topics of nine conference papers. Educational trends and needs are identified in three papers on the future of teacher preparation programs, new directions in curriculum in relation to black and other minority students in teacher training programs, and the black professional as an agent of change. Other papers discuss training special education teachers in behavioral psychology, classroom observation systems for the improvement of teaching, training for teachers of aurally handicapped infants and their parents, and the training of consulting teachers to provide special education services within regular classrooms through consultation with teachers, administrators, and parents. Final papers explain the multidisciplinary approach to special education in Washington County, Virginia and report on the role of the consulting teacher in the use of home consequences to reinforce classroom behavior modification and learning procedures.
