Thomas, M. Angele, Ed.
Included in the publication are 10 articles on developing basic skills in severely and profoundly handicapped children. The first paper focuses on the development of object permanence, a basic cognitive skill, while the second and third review procedures for developing self care skills (toileting and eating). A fourth paper discusses an interdisciplinary approach to a communication system for a nonvocal severely physically handicapped student. A vision stimulation program for low functioning deaf-blind rebella children is outlined in the fifth article, while initial attention control procedures are discussed in the sixth. Topics covered in the remaining papers are techniques for developing appropriate school bus behavior, considerations in involving the autistic child in the regular school, the use of a learning center approach, and teacher education.
