Siperstein, Gary N.
Presented is the evaluation of a program designed to improve the skills of 2,700 handicapped students (5-16 years old) in the areas of reading and mathematics, using intensive individual and small group instruction and supplementing the special education academic program. Among findings listed are that brain-injured and physically handicapped children, particularly those in elementary grades, made significant academic gains; and that the program varied according to program site. Among recommendations noted are that receiving schools cooperate with the program teacher and teacher trainer in providing supplementary instruction, that orientation and in-service training for teachers be held throughout the year, and that teachers be provided with a curriculum package. Appended materials include a classroom observation profile and test results in tabular form. (IM)
