Mainstreaming Strategies in Home Economics.
Durr, Gloria E.; Bell, Camille G.
This manual is designed to aid vocational homemaking teachers in Texas to provide instruction for handicapped students in regular classes ("mainstreaming"). The manual is divided into nine parts. Part 1 explains the concept and purposes of mainstreaming and describes the development of the manual. Parts 2-7 relate to the following six types of handicapped students: mentally and emotionally handicapped and learning disabled; deaf, hearing, and speech impaired; blind and visually impaired; physically handicapped; health impaired; and multiply handicapped. Each of these parts contains a description of the handicap, problems and teaching strategies to meet them, services provided by the appropriate state agencies in Texas, and a list of selected resources. Part 8 of the manual is a bibliography, while part 9 , an appendix, includes the survey instruments for data collection and a self-evaluation instrument on mainstreaming for teacher use. (KC)
