Alexander, Michael L.
Englewood Learning Center in Chicago provides programs for severely and profoundly handicapped children (5 to 17 years old) in an urban area where many families live in subpoverty conditions. The program requires families to be involved in the individualized education program process and in the whole range of educational services. The program relies on a behavior management system using a token economy and progression of limits. The therapy program combines elements of psychotherapy, reality therapy, gestalt, play therapy, family, and behavioral therapy. The administrative style promotes group sharing, respect, and independent thought. (CL)
