Crouse, Robert J.; Kappan, David L.
Described is the 4-year development of a prototype program to train teachers competent in both the academic areas related to the visually handicapped and in orientation and mobility. Teachers with dual competencies were needed to fulfill the educational needs of visually handicapped children in public day school programs in rural, sparsely populated areas. The major portion of the document consists of a detailed discussion of three phases of program development (planning, a pilot model, and a prototype model) and includes lists of competencies and course requirements and results of program evaluation after each phase. Also included are a summary of the current employment status of 22 program graduates and brief descriptions of the 22 final prototype courses. (LS)
