Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Students.
Provided in the booklet are suggestions that school districts may use to develop home instructional programs for trainable mentally retarded (TMR), hearing impaired, visually handicapped, language and speech handicapped (as a result of physical or mental handicaps), and physically or multiply handicapped children from birth to 5 years of age. Noted is legislation enacted by the Florida legislature in 1973 which specifies eligibility of the severly handicapped for home instruction. Program goals are given to include increase of parental understanding of children's needs through parent education, and the building of a more cooperative relationship within the home. A list of 17 percent guides (with annotations and prices) accompanies suggestions for the TMR program. Annotated bibliographies containing approximately 18 entries, respectively, follow discussion on program components for both the hearing impaired and the visually handicapped. Included to aid in the early childhood home education (0 to 3 years of age) of physically or mentally handicapped children with language and speech problems are approximately 18 annotated workshop program materials, books and pamphlets for parents, and counseling aids for speech pathologists and audiologists. Approximately 25 references accompany the discussion on psychological and training needs of the physically or multiply handicapped. (MC)
