Spearman, Carolyn; Gaddis, Ruth
The trainer's manual offers a sampling of workshop materials to assist the regular classroom teacher in the process of screening, identification, referral, and assessment of handicapped students. Following an introduction are sections with information, sample handouts, forms, and checklists on the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): classroom teacher identification of exceptional children (definitions, factors which inhibit learning, referral characteristics); procedures for referral; nondiscriminatory testing; informal assessment techniques (visual learning, auditory learning, perceptual motor learning, number concepts and abilities, reading and language arts abilities, social and behavioral development, learning styles); formal assessment/frequently used tests in various areas of assessment; and interrelation of educational assessment and educational intervention. Additional sections offer lists of references, resources, materials, and audiovisual media. Sample workshop evaluation forms complete the document. (SB)
