Impact 8 of the Title VI Programs in the State of Oregon: September 1, 1973-August 1974.
McDonnell, John J.; And Others
Nineteen projects that served seven different classes of handicapped were funded for 1973-74 in Oregon under Title VI of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Six projects were funded for the emotionally disturbed, four projects for the hearing impaired, two projects for the developmentally disabled, two projects for the visually impaired, and one each for the trainable mentally retarded and the preschool handicapped. The projects served 1,650 children at a cost of $247,045. A careful examination of the 19 projects funded supported the following conclusions: that resource rooms demonstrated themselves to be efficient ways to serve emotionally disturbed children; that, given appropriate training and technical assistance, classroom teachers could cope with behavior problems in the classroom; that the use of volunteer aides with both speech and visually impaired children in areas where teachers were working on an itinerant basis continued to demonstrate itself to be an effective technique; and that a project serving developmentally disabled high school youth demonstrated that work experience skills could be taught effectively to such children.
