Workshop in the Education of the Exceptional Child.
Hall, William F.; Sieswerda, David
The volume, based on workshop proceedings, discusses identifying characteristics of various handicapping conditions and describes relevant teaching methods and curricula. Characteristic behaviors of aggressive and withdrawn emotionally disturbed children are specified. Discussions of mentally handicapped children center on problems of identification, teacher characteristics, curriculum, behavior modification, elimination of maladaptive behavior, referrals, screening, perception, personal and social competencies, vocational education and cooperative agencies. Examined are learning disabilities related to auditory and visual reception, auditory and visual association, manual expression, auditory and visual closure, and auditory and visual sequential memory. Also treated are the educational history, sociological influences, identification, testing, teacher characteristics, and enrichment of gifted individuals. The education of bilingual children is considered in relation to historical background, development of language skills, the Title VII Program, the Head Start Program, Indian children, migrant children, and the record transfer system. Speakers, films, and class trips of the workshop program are listed. (GW)
