Navajo Education Resource Center, Many Farms, Arizona. Final Technical Report, 1973-1974.
Caster, P. Roland
The voluminous final technical report contains comprehensive information covering the 1973-74 activities of the Navajo Education Resource Center (NERC). The project's purpose was to develop an Indian Resource Service Office which would function as a support service system for handicapped children's programs on the Navajo Reservation and which could be replicated on other reservations. Included are chapters on center objectives such as conducting a preliminary survey to identify handicapped children, designing a region-wide procedure for diagnosis of handicapped Indian children, developing a diagnostic/prescriptive resource room model, coordinating proposed Instructional Materials Center activities with diagnostic efforts, and providing direct services (such as training sessions in contingency management and early identification of handicapped preschoolers) to teachers and school administrators. Other chapters cover such topics as monthly progress reports and project effects. Among the extensive appendixes comprising the last half of the document are suggestions for implementing an NERC study to determine the prevalence of handicapping conditions among Indian school children, a procedural manual for resource room operation, and a model plan for an Indian Learning Resource Center.
