Corvallis 509J T.M.R. Curriculum. Revised Edition.
Beckham, Tass; And Others
Intended for use with trainable retarded, moderately to profoundly multihandicapped students, and young mildly handicapped learners, the curriculum guide provides task objectives, task analyses, and exercise ideas for six categories: self help skills, language skills, motor development skills, basic academic skills, home living skills, and vocational skills. It is expected that teachers will determine, through information observation, formal skill testing, and parent conferencing, the most approprite skills to be taught. The curriculum provides for recording student progress a minimum of four times throughout the school year. Task objectives are given for the following specific areas: eating, dressing, personal hygiene and grooming, prespeech, receptive language, expressive language, nonverbal communication systems, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, preacademic basic concepts, reading, writing, numbers, money, clothing care, first aid skills, prevocational basic skills, and specific job skills. Most task analyses provide gradual withdrawal of prompting so that students perform a task first with physical assistance, then with additional visual and verbal cues, verbal cues only, and finally independently.
