The Rutland Center: A Model Program of Teacher Training and Service for Children with Severe Emotional and Behavioral Problems.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Div. for Exceptional Children.
The Rutland Center project is a combined teacher training-service model for the education of children with severe emotional and behavioral problems from 2-14 years of age. The model has several unique features: a) a new social-emotional curriculum (Developmental Therapy) for emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children, which uses normal developmental milestones as a guide to teaching by objectives; b) a performance-based team teaching model with three clearly specified roles (psychoeducational services to children and families; professional, paraprofessional, and volunteer training; and technical assistance) for which trainees are prepared by sequential assignment in each role; c) a highly functional evaluation system which is criterion referenced to Developmental Theory and with which trainees learn to evaluate each child's progress in the developmental curriculum, thereby using evaluation procedures to obtain ongoing feedback into the teaching process; d) a series of audiovisual training packages enabling individuals to learn the model at their own rate and at locations away from the center.
