Administrator's Guide to Programs for Speech Handicapped School Children.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Programs for the Handicapped.
The handbook offers guidelines to administrators who are developing programs to meet the need for speech therapy services in South Carolina schools. Responsibilities of school principals, speech coordinators, speech clinicians, and classroom teachers are identified. Recommendations are made concerning equipment needs (tape recorders, audiometers, record players, and mirrors) and facility specifications (room size, electrical supply, and furniture). Two procedures for scheduling clinicians' school visits (the itinerant and blocking systems) are diagrammed, and varying therapy schedules are recommended for children with different degrees of speech handicaps. Described are screening and reevaluation procedures for children in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Appendixes include forms for a statistical summary for state aid and a district summary of state aid; the South Carolina Special Education Act of 1970; addresses of companies publishing diagnostic and instructional materials; and addresses of speech and hearing centers in South Carolina. Also presented in the appendixes are forms for referrals, progress reports, dismissals, semester-end reports, and clinicians' monthly caseload attendance reports. (GW)
