Interrelationship Between Regular and Special Education Service Delivery Systems for Intervention Attitude of Acceptance Toward Exceptional Children: Participant's Manual. Activity Directions, Exceptional Child Component.
Peterson, Diana K.; Whitmore, Ladonna
The participant's manual contains activity direction for a teacher workshop focusing on the interrelationship between regular and special education, service delivery systems for intervention, and attitude of acceptance toward exceptional children. Activities correspond to the ten workshop objectives: to define the concept of mainstreaming, to write a rationale for mainstream education, to compare and contrast mainstream education with traditional special programs, to describe the various instructional models and the role relationships of personnel within each, to become aware of the way in which differences set people apart, to describe the classifications and characteristics of special students, to compare and contrast academic information versus labels as aids in planning for instruction, to appreciate the sense of being "different" as experienced by special students, to describe the ways in which expectations and stereotypes of others affect responses/learning/relationships, and to identify positive characteristics in labeled special students. The bulk of the document provides definitions, behavioral characteristics, educational treatment, and readings related to specific exceptionalities. (SB)
