Training and Utilizing Teaching Aides for Trainable Mentally Retarded Children. Evaluation Report.
Joiner, Lee M.
Evaluated was a program utilizing aides to assist in the instruction of 40 trainable mentally retarded children in the areas of self help skills, arts and crafts, motor development, and language development. Evaluation was by an external observer for the purpose of providing program planning information. Approximately 70 questions were formulated to reflect major dimensions of the project (physical facilities, diagnosis, student performance, curriculum, materials, parents, performance of aide and teacher, and supervision) and to minimize value judgments. Examples of questions were whether adequate space was available for the program and whether a standard curriculum guide was used. Recommendations included the improvement of toilet facilities, the implementation of a behavior modification program, more systematic intake and diagnostic procedures, the use of standard curriculum guides, improved use of instructional materials, the forming of a parents' group, and monthly evaluation of aide performance. Appended is a listing of approximately 60 instructional materials with company addresses. (DB)
