Preschool Instruction for the Exceptional. Project Report, 1974-75.
Northern Valley Administrators Association, Closter, NJ.
Presented is the 1974-75 project report containing descriptions and evaluations of the five accomplished goals of the Preschool Instruction for the Exceptional (PIE) program which has provided services for 11 New Jersey students (3-5 years old). The first objective, identification and diagnosis of preschool handicapped children, is described in terms of population served, intake process and procedure, and the number and description of the 18 children referred. Described next is objective 2, the development of a multidisciplinary team and the creation of a learning environment for each child including team members and role functions, and staff development procedures. Discussed is the development and implementation of personalized programs for prescriptive teaching (objective 3), including individual prescriptions and group learning environment. The fourth objective, involvement of parents of handicapped children in their child's personalized learning program, is seen to provide communications with parents (orientation, formal and informal reports, and parent meetings), services for parents (parent education and counseling), and assistance provided by parents (parent volunteers, and parent members on the advisory committee). Noted are activities taken to implement the fifth objective community outreach to facilitate mainstreaming of the children (advisory groups, presentations, visits, meetings, media development, and press releases). A major portion of the document comprises 16 appendixes including newspaper and newsletter articles, a PIE handout to volunteers, descriptions of children, educational objectives, and a parent information booklet.
