The Psychologist As a Change-Agent in Providing In-Service Training to Staff Members Serving School-Aged Severely Retarded.
McBride, Hugh J.; Morrow, Robert D.
As a result of court rulings and legislation which make it illegal to discriminate among children, but also illegal not to identify children who have educational handicaps, school psychologists are seen to face a role crisis in the education of handicapped children. Recommended for those working with the severely retarded are two types of services: administration and interpretation of educationally related assessments, and consultation in implementing a prescriptive program based on the assessment. Diagrammed is a model to train psychologists as change agents. (CL)
