Singh, Surendra P.
Guidelines are presented for a program to prepare educational personnel to work with young children displaying learning and behavior disabilities despite adequate intelligence, hearing, vision, motor capacity, and emotional adjustment. The program provides the following skills and competencies to prospective clinical teachers: (1) skills in identification of perceptual abilities, communication skills, self-concept, principles of learning, cultural influences, the understanding of "self", the case study approach; (2) competencies in utilizing types of responses, questioning, and stimuli for effective teaching; (3) knowledge of subject content in art, science, math, and reading; and (4) ability to utilize these skills and competencies in designing educational programs and performing in the classroom. Seven procedures to achieve these goals are: comprehensive course work, an interdisciplinary seminar, an early intervention workshop, the development of a children's center, field work, a special section of college courses, and directed study involving individualized instruction. A performance rating scale is attached. (CK)
