Hospital Head Start University Affiliated Program for Handicapped and Non-Handicapped.
Feldman, Beverly
A model program designed to integrate 6 handicapped with 9 nonhandicapped preschoolers in a training hospital setting was set up through the cooperative efforts of Head Start and the University Affiliated Program (UAP) at Children's Hospital (Los Angeles, California). The program offered a combination of comprehensive health care and integrated educational services to low-income children and their families and provided interdisciplinary inservice training in special education to both Head Start and UAP staff members. Training consisted of seminars on subjects such as classroom techniques, information regarding handicapping conditions, staff attitudes toward the handicapped child, and skills in working with parents as well as through observation and direct classroom participation with the children and their parents. Parent involvement, participation, and education was accomplished through activities such as parent meetings on subjects including child development and speech development; workshops on topics such as nutrition; and special events such as trips to the zoo and the neighborhood library. (Included is a bibliography of 47 references which usually list author, title, publisher, and publication date.) (LH)
