A Collection of Papers and Programs Related to Public School Services for Severely Handicapped Students. Volume 4.
Brown, Lou; And Others
Presented are papers and programs generated as part of a Madison, Wisconsin project to develop a public school educational program for severely handicapped students. Three introductory papers deal with topics such as teacher training, litigation over questions of overinclusion and overexclusion, and what the practitioner needs from the researcher to develop public school programs for low-functioning individuals. Four language and reading skill programs are reported on the following topics: teaching pronouns, developing chart story reading skills, and improving reading comprehension. In the area of math, a developmental math skill sequence and a method for teaching students to solve addition problems are provided. Three papers on development of independent community living skills include an instructional model for developing home living skills, a family-life curriculum, and a method for teaching use of the telephone. Also included are a paper on training parents in child management and one on increasing the speech intensity of a retarded-emotionally disturbed student. (LS)
