Strategies in the workshop acquaint trainees with techinques and methods for identifying, referring, and assessing the handicapped child, with emphasis on the awareness and understanding of the characteristics of the mildly and moderately impaired student in the classroom. Individual sections cover the following conditions: physical handicap, significant limited intellectual capacity, significant identifiable emotional or behavioral disorder, hearing handicap, visual handicap, speech handicap, and perceptual-communicative disorder. Usually outlined are definition, characteristics, behavior characteristics, methods for teaching, equipment needed, and resources for information on each condition. A list of parent and professional reading resources completes the document. (SB)
