Harrison, Susan, Comp.; And Others
Intended for trainers developing inservice workshops for regular classroom teachers and/or generalists, the manual contains information that evolved from field experiences and training efforts of special educators associated with the Rocky Mountain Regional Resource Center's (RMRRC) program to explore ways to support teachers serving handicapped children in the least restrictive environment possible. Information is divided into five major sections: identification, diagnosis, prescription, programing, and evaluation. Each section contains an introduction and overview, a narrative, and a summary. Topics covered include the following: observation of behavior, screening instruments, profiling, methods in diagnosis, total assessment, task analysis, diagnostic teaching, organization of diagnostic data, writing a prescription, scope and sequence, instructional materials and programs, instructional methods and techniques, evaluative tools, and behavior measurement. Appended materials include a glossary of items for systematic observation of behavior, categorical descriptions of handicaps, a review of formal screening instruments and diagnostic tests, descriptions of instructional materials and techniques, a list of publishers of instructional materials, an overview of the original training program, a report on the RMRRC Stratistician Project, and a paper titled "Reading the Environment to Gain Acceptance".
