Assisting the Physically Handicapped: An Identification and Development of Apparatus for Laboratory Shops. Phase I.
Bruwelheide, Kenneth L.
A study was conducted to identify and develop instructional aids in the form of physical apparatus that would permit students with physical handicaps and/or limitations to have greater access to laboratory-shop courses in Montana secondary schools. Steps taken in carrying out the study included the following: (1) identifying the physically handicapped population in public school; (2) summarizing legislation pertinent to public education of the handicapped; (3) developing apparatus that will permit physically handicapped students to use selected tools and equipment; (4) developing a set of working drawings of such apparatus; and (5) developing an assessment and implementation model of handicaps and programs for teacher use. Methodology included literature review, testing tools, and designing special apparatus with a group of handicapped students from Montana State University. Recommendations generated by the study include more teacher preservice and inservice education concerning working with handicapped students, testing with a broader range of handicaps, and testing a different or more complex set of tools. Appendixes include lists of tools used in the test and a teacher's guide to handicapped student assessment and apparatus implementation. (KC)
