Presented is the end of project year (1972-1973) report of an interim program to improve the academic performance and behavior of 48 educable mentally retarded and educationally handicapped adolescents 12- to 17-years-old who had been excluded from special education classes. Reported are performance measures (such as teacher developed inventories and anecdotal records) in four revised program objectives: student achievement in specialized curriculum to develop reading, arithmetic, social, and preoccupational skills; increased student academic output and rate of appropriate behavior through implementation of operant principles; successful student return to regular special education programs; and parent contact. Included in the appendixes are sample student evaluation forms in social living and occupational skills, an explanation of the reinforcement point system used, and the anecdotal records of the 48 students.
