Inservice Training in the Data Based Classroom Model for Severely Handicapped Children, Teaching Research Infant and Child Center.
Baldwin, Victor L.; Fredericks, H. D. Bud
Inservice training procedures used to implement the Teaching Resource Classroom Model (a program for moderately, severely, and profoundly handicapped students) were evaluated with 94 teachers and administrators. The model is composed of the following 10 components: delivery of appropriate cues and consequences, assessment of student skill level, development of individualized programs, use of volunteers to conduct individualized instruction, use of aides to conduct group instruction, use of stimulation programs, use of toilet training programs, development of behavior intervention programs, use of systems to monitor maintenance of acquired skills, and the conduct of home programs. Data for the 5 day inservice session and subsequent followup services revealed that the educators achieved criterion level for 98% of the training objectives. Training and classroom costs were also computed. (CL)
