Curriculum Guides for Level I and Level II: National Manpower Model.
National Inst. on Mental Retardation, Toronto (Ontario).
Curriculum guides to levels I and II of the Canadian National Manpower Model, which elaborate on content originally presented in 1971, are provided for personnel training programs in the field of mental retardation and related handicapping areas. The guides are said to be based on a philosophy that demands society's acceptance of retarded and handicapped persons, and are designed to prepare personnel through preservice or inservice education to serve handicapped persons during and after integration into society. It is expected that a national, voluntary registration scheme for programs meeting minimum standards will be established which will enable certified graduates to move from province to province. Included in Level I are nine curriculum units which address the normalization principle in services to the handicapped; identification, causation, and prevention of mental retardation; learning and development; behavioral management; observational techniques and report writing; human relations; planning for daily and social life; applied activities in recreation/leisure; and health maintenance and basic pharmacology. Eight curriculum units in Level II treat applications of the normalization principle, specialization areas (child development, residential, vocational, and community support services), learning and development, independent living skills, effective communication, teaching strategies, social psychology, and programing and behavioral management. Each unit usually contains components dealing with competencies, academic content, practical content, resources, and films. Included are a glossary, and addresses of national and provincial associations for the mentally retarded. (For related information see EC 032 373). (MC)
