Evaluation of the Program for Multiply Handicapped in the Bergen County Special Services School District.
Lederer, James B.; And Others
The report describes evaluation of the Bergen County (NJ) program designed to develop positive self concept, foster appropriate communication skills, maximize physical growth and ability, and provide direction and counsel in making appropriate decisions for postschool life of approximately 135 multiply handicapped children (3 to 20 years old). Individual sections address the following program components: program philosophy; program goals; program objectives; instructional and service activities; instructional materials; instructional and therapeutic equipment; instructional resources; related services; monitoring the progress of instruction and therapy; organizational development (grouping of students, staffing, job descriptions, staff development); decision making; and outreach (community services, community education, parent education). Noted among commendations and recommendations are that materials and equipment are used appropriately in classes and in therapy rooms, the program appears to have a comprehensive system for collecting and reporting critical student data and daily information, and attention should be given to the need to incorporate prevocational and vocational training into the curriculum. A table with administrative response to evaluation recommendations and an appended program description complete the report. (SB)
