Assessing Guidance Needs of Handicapped/Special Students.
This document describes a project to develop an instrument for the assessment of the guidance and affective needs of special education students. The needs assessment instruments, contained in the appendices, are presented: the primary grade level "What Do You Think" inventory to assess school, family, self, and peer concerns; and the "Concerns I Have" instrument for fourth through eighth grade students to assess self, peer, school, family, and career and decision-making concerns. Findings from the administration of these instruments to both different categories of special education students and regular classroom students are presented in tabular form. An elementary school developmental guidance program is discussed in terms of goal setting, needs assessment, prioritizing, objectives, implementation, and evaluation. (NRB)
