Serving the Young Handicapped Child in the Least Restrictive Environment. Initiating Change Through Inservice Education: A Topical Instructional Modules Series.
Vincent, Lisbeth J.; And Others
The facilitator's guide is for a four session (8 hours) inservice training module on serving young handicapped children in the least restrictive environment by regular and special education teachers. The guide includes an introductory lecturette providing a rationale for early integrated education of the handicapped and examples of successful programs and procedures. Training sessions are designed to be conducted on a small group (about eight persons) basis with active participation and problem solving by all group members and to provide participants with useable lists of goals and objectives for children. Sessions are outlined according to goals and process. Group activities include discussion of the lecturette, identification of child behaviors which correlate with success in normal classroom environments, identification of educational goals of normal preschool and kindergarten classrooms, and identification of activities to teach independence skills to children of different developmental levels. Suggestions for evaluation of the inservice sessions are given. (DB)
