Donahue, Michael J.; And Others
The guide is for a 12 week parent education course on the mental stimulation of young handicapped children. Major objectives of the course are helping the child feel positively about himself and helping the child develop his intellectual abilities. Material reinforcements are offered parents who meet criteria for attendance, assignments, and learning episode evaluations. Major topics considered at the weekly meetings are the responsive program, toys as learning tools, creativity, self concept, discipline, behavior modification, language development, and sensory motor development. The following games are taken home and used with the children: sound cans, color lotto, number puzzle, feely bag, shape-o-ball, flannel board, pegs and pegboard, wooden table blocks, stacking squares, and spinner game. Color coded by sessions, sections usually include assignment sheets, an introductory discussion, recommended materials, suggested activities, and games to play with the toy to be taken home that week.
