Leadership Preparation for Educators of Crippled and Other Health Impaired-Multiply Handicapped Populations. Report of a Special Study Institute, New York, March 1973.
Connor, Frances P., Ed.; Cohen, Michael J., Ed.
Reported are proceedings and results from a special study institute (1973) related to development of a leadership training program for educators of crippled and other health impaired-multiply handicapped (COHI-MH) persons. Noted are contributions of two previous conferences (in 1970 and 1971). Presented are reports of five task forces on the following topics: the process of social change (including trends in higher education and issues affecting COHI-MH); a working definition of COHI-MH; teacher education for COHI-MH; community agency involvement; and suggestions for implementation of the leadership training program. Five prepared papers on the right to education, the impact of the changing social scene, continuing education and the leadership training institute in learning disabilities are included. Listed are major conclusions of the conferees such as the need for special educators to influence responses to social and cultural changes and the need for continuous review and evaluation of COHI-MH teacher education. Appended are tentative goals and corresponding competencies to be obtained by prospective COHI-MH teachers (in areas such as management of physical and medical problems), a list of institute participants, and the schedule of institute activities.
