The Team Approach--An Inservice Training Model for Special Education.
Smith, Tom E. C.; Bradley, Robert H.
This paper presents an inservice model that uses the team approach for classrooms with exceptional children. Rather than providing inservice training to large groups of educators, this model proposes training a team of people who will work together in the same school. The team includes regular classroom teachers, special education resource teachers, speech therapists, and counselors. Activities in the model concern: 1) general information about the exceptional students and the educational implications of their handicaps, 2) the various functions of individual team members, and 3) methods and materials to be used in the teaching of the exceptional students. As a result, educators should better understand the roles and abilities of all members of the delivery team. (Author/CJ)
