Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center: Service and Training. Volume II of III. Final Report.
Buffmire, Judy Ann
The second volume of a three-volume report on the Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center provides data on service and training components of the Center's functioning from its inception in 1970 through 1974. Provided are analyses of three 1-year stages in the development of the stratistician model which was originally designed to provide a mechanism for locating the unidentified handicapped not receiving appropriate services and to establish resources necessary for helping the handicapped in a regular class setting. Reported are such developments as the following: that the original work done in the first stage was the collection of data to define inservice training needs; that the measurement of that process ceased in the second stage and was not reinstated; and that although service intentions were defined initially, they became lost in the process of implementation as the stratistician become an effective service provider instead of a data collector. Described is the training sessions for teachers in the stratisticians' schools and preservice training activities in teacher training institutions. Research and evaluation activities are discussed. Appendixes, which comprise more than half the volume, contain such items as stratistician data collection forms and the problem thesaurus, a bibliography on affect-interaction-communication, a bibliography on the competencies and skills needed by stratistician/generalists, and an affective study on student teachers in special education.
