Gendreau, Joan C.; And Others
One of a series of materials developed by Project APT (Administrators, Parents, and Teachers/Assessment, Programing, and Training), a program designed to foster home/school coordination in educational planning and program implementation for severely mentally retarded and/or multiply handicapped students; the booklet provides five screening tools in the areas of hearing, vision, physical function (for both ambulatory and nonambulatory students), oral motor, and maladaptive behavior. For each of these areas, instructions for the use of the form, the actual form, and a statement of educational implications resulting from the screening are included. An introductory section outlines each screening instrument, surveys information needed in the assessment process, describes the intake procedure, and provides the screening summary form. Two other sections present a Cognition Checklist (for brief educational assessment) and a Home Information Questionnaire (which gathers information from parents). (PHR)
