A Model for Regional Training for Head Start Services to Handicapped Children.
This document describes a model for regional training of Head Start personnel. It reports on a training symposium convened to clarify the objectives and methods involved in Head Start's commitment to serving handicapped children. Participants were divided into small groups and were encouraged to actively discuss, question, and share their reactions. Consultants worked with each small group separately. Some of the goals of the 2-day program were: (1) orientation to Head Start's responsibility toward the handicapped, (2) providing participants with background information about handicapped children, how to work with such children in integrated settings and available community resources for serving these children, (3) providing Head Start participants with a replicable training model, (4) giving parents information about Head Start's commitment, and (5) identifying attitudes toward handicapped children in a safe, facilitative environment which was conducive to sharing and learning. The agenda for each day of the program is included. (DP)
