An Educator's Blueprint: A Guide to Programs and Services K-12.
Stephens, Estherdale; Jones, Linda
Written for administrators, learning disabilities (LD) teachers, psychologists, and parents, the guide consists of a plan for providing programs and services for LD children (K-12). LD children are assigned to resource rooms for a portion of each school day with the goal of remediation and return to the educational mainstream. Outlined are five levels of service (from developmental kindergarten programs to private placement) and specific service objectives for each level. A model of an educational core team is presented, and the roles of team members such as the classroom teacher, reading specialist, and psychologist are listed. Organizational options such as the diagnostic-consultive option and the resource option are described and their advantages and disadvantages examined. Among sample proposals for program planning are a parent-school interaction program and an elementary screening program. Detailed are LD teacher qualifications and interview questions and guidelines for starting an LD resource room. Suggestions for planning inservice training include workshop objectives, types of meetings, and a form for inservice evaluation. Charts on admission and screening processes and forms for prereferral and pupil evaluation are among procedural guidelines covered. Appended are lists of organizations serving LD children, professional journals, inservice films, tests, and materials. (LS)
