Industrial Arts for Elementary Mentally Retarded Children: An Attempt to Redefine and Clarify Goals: Occasional Paper #3.
Rynders, John E.
Industrial arts instruction for elementary school retarded children promotes sociovocational habits (such as consideration for others and thoroughness), and academic skills (such as perceptual-motor skills and number concepts), and also provides unique experiences with concrete materials. In addition to reinforcing the school's general goals, industrial arts can be a diversionary activity for the child. Behavioral goals incorporating sociovocational and academic skills should be established for pre-school through high school instruction to maximize the adult retardate's vocational adjustment. (CL)
