1968-1969 Yearly Report of the Consulting Teacher Program: Volume I.
Vermont Univ., Burlington. Coll. of Education.; Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier. Div. of Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services.
Reported is the 1968-69 school year of Vermont's Consulting Teacher Program (Burlington) during which eight regular elementary school teachers successfully completed the first half of an inservice program in behavior modification, programing, consulting, and research skills; and provided special educational services for 50 handicapped learners in regular classrooms. The report explains the program's rationale (focusing on potential advantages of regular class placement of handicapped learners and on estimated costs of special class and consulting teacher approaches) and methods (including behavior theory, service and research activities, teacher preparation, and dissemination of skills and knowledge). The summary of program results, in which program projections are compared with actual accomplishments, indicates that participating teachers developed methods to measure educational deficits of handicapped children on a daily basis, that measured educational deficits were ameliorated through applications of behavior modification principles, and that the effectiveness of such application was researched through functional analyses of behavior.
