Described are components of Project FAST (Functional Analysis Systems Training) a nationally validated project to provide more effective educational and support services to learning disordered children and their regular elementary classroom teachers. The program is seen to be based on a series of modules of delivery systems ranging from mainstream teachers working with building principals and parents (module 1) to consultants, specialists from the community, and community agencies (module 3). Stressed is the importance of training teachers in the following developmental objectives: observation of how the child goes about learning, analysis of what each task demands, analysis of the developmental level, prescription of the specific educational program, organization of the classroom, helping children in directing their own behavior appropriately, being receptive to support help, teamwork with peers and teamwork with parents. Explained is a model of a functional learning system which involves various information processing modes, activation through proprioception, symbolic coding of information, a scanning mechanism, and sensory feedback mechanisms. Also included are a flow chart of project implementation, and forms to use at the individual school or school district level. (DB)
