A Model Plan to Serve the Handicapped Student in Technology: A Sensitized Experience.
Chisman, Arlington W.; Farmer, Edgar I.
These workshop materials are designed to assist technologists in coping with handicapped students in their programs. They contain information on the characteristics of handicapped persons, and some of the psychological and legal considerations that form the background from which the students come; and they focus on developing insight that will help instructors to provide a better program for handicapped students. The materials consist of four learning experiences, with self-checking tests for each experience. Learning experience 1 explores the characteristics of handicapping conditions and the psychological factors associated with them; learning experience 2 provides an orthopedically handicapped simulation; learning experience 3 discusses learning disabilities and includes a sample of how a reading-disabled student views a text selection; and learning experience 4 provides a simulation of visual impairment.
