Ramey, Madelaine; James, Jim
This report is based on the responses of special education teaching staff to a 1976-77 questionnaire designed to assess special education curriculum needs in the Seattle, Washington public schools. Results focus on the following topics: (1) curriculum comparability between handicap programs; (2) the comparability of special education curriculum with that for non-handicapped students; (3) the need for greater emphasis on career education in the special education classroom; and (4) special education teachers' inservice training needs. In addition, suggestions are provided for improvement in the special education curriculum and for reviewing the allocation of classroom time for special education and non special education subjects. Appended to the report are (1) tables indicating the use of textbooks in various subjects within and across handicap categories; and (2) a copy of the questionnaire used to survey teachers. (APM)
