Doyle, Phyllis B.; And Others
Dealing with profound and severe mental retardation, the final report of Project TRAC (Training, Resources, Acquisition, and Control) describes activities and products of the project in the subject areas of parent involvement, educational/teaching techniques, assessment, and monitoring techniques. The report details the establishment of a resource library, the development of a parent-oriented instructional text (How to Help Your Child), identification of positive and negative aspects of testing and review of curricular material (culminating in the development of a TRAC Monitoring System) and the development of inservice programs for educators in special education. Evaluation procedures and findings, project results and implications, and factors relevant to success and shortcomings are among other areas discussed. Extensive appendices include, in part, TRAC inservice invitation and agenda, field test guidelines, the evaluation report, and the TRAC Monitoring System Manual. (PHR)
