Sievert, Joe; Winkles, L. Kathleen

Minimum specific objectives in the domains of social self-help, communications, and psychomotor development are color coded according to handicap. Suggested are sample activities correlated to the specific objectives. For example, to teach the child to kick a ball without falling (psychomotor objective 8), the following activities are suggested: "Holding the student's leg, move it forward as to kick the ball in front of him. Have a ball in front of you and one in front of the student. Try to get him to model you kicking the ball." The appendix lists 5 nonhandicapped curriculums and 33 further references. (CL)
