Annual Distinguished Lectures Series in Special Education and Rehabilitation (10th, Los Angeles, Calif., Summer 1971).
Williams, Eddie H., Ed.; Schrader, Donald R., Ed.
Presented are six lectures in special education and rehabilitation given in 1971 at the University of Southern California. Dr. James Gallagher considers accountability, program planning, and program evaluation by means of a systems model. Suggested are the development of measurable educational objectives in special education. Dr. Edgar Lowell deals with the most productive use of funds and personnel. Offered is a model of educational planning which would include more mechanized schools and a higher ratio of pupils per teacher. Dr. Clayton Morgan explores aspects of human potential and suggests that limiting the expected achievements of the handicapped does them a great disservice. Dr. Frank Hewitt considers the dilemma of special versus regular classroom placement. He describes the Madison Plan which groups children having learning difficulties together in a progressive preacademic and academic program of classroom skills. Dr. Carolyn Vash stresses the necessity for a conceptual view of man and offers her own philosophy as a basis for rehabilitation programs. Andrew Marrin discusses principles of vocational rehabilitation such as the one-to-one client-counselor relationship in terms of his 30 years of experience in the field. (DB)
