Somerton, M. Ellen; Turner, Keith D.
Described is the Pennsylvania Training Model Individual Assessment Guide, designed to assist teachers in the development of specific programs for the severely and profoundly mentally retarded and multihandicapped. A section is provided for each of the system's four major components: the curriculum assessment guide for gross screening in the areas of sensory and motor development, activities of daily living, communication, perceptual-cognitive skills, and social and emotional development; competency checklists of more specific behaviors within each subject area; an individual prescriptive planning sheet in which antecedents, behavior, consequences, and criteria are task analyzed; and continuous data on which data on child progress is recorded. Also provided in the document is a flow chart of the system, an annotated bibliography of approximately 50 references, and a brief summary of the first year of the Pennsylvania Training Model. (CL)
