The Design and Implementation of an Empirically Based Instructional Program for Young Severely Handicapped Students: Toward the Rejection of the Exclusion Principle. Part 3.
Brown, Lou; And Others
Reported are 15 classroom programs which were conducted (1972-73) with 14 students as part of a Madison, Wisconsin project to develop a public school instructional program for severely handicapped children. Ss are described as children who would usually be labelled custodial, autistic, or pretrainable and who would be excluded from involvement in most public school systems. The program stresses using highly structured applied behavioral analysis orientation. Included are four basic language skill programs used to teach direction following, location concept, receptive language, and expressive language. Four reading skill programs reported consist of initial sight word, color, basic alphabet, and chart story programs. Math skill programs are reported for three areas: number discrimination and labeling, basic counting and quantity concepts, and rudimentary math concepts. Adjunctive programs and papers include a prewriting program, a shape discrimination and labeling program, a paper on behavior management problems, and a description of the curriculum used with the only blind S. Appended are characteristics of individual Ss (taken from folders, teacher-observations, and parent interviews), class schedules and room arrangement charts, and forms used to evaluate students. (LS)
