Harley, Randall K.; And Others
The document presents the final report of the Model Vision Project (MVP) Outreach Phase, funded to demonstrate appropriate educational, diagnostic, training, and other services to severely multihandicapped, visually impaired children. Roles of various staff are reviewed, and individuals serving as consultants are listed. Summarized are the goals and objectives of nine project components: dissemination, demonstration, participation, planning, coordination and cooperation, training, implementation, parent involvement, and evaluation. Four replication sites are focused on--Chattanooga, Sevierville, Knoxville, and Louisville. Noted among findings of the program evaluation were that descriptive data written by conference participants were usually very positive, all workshops showed significant knowledge gains, students generally made slow but steady progress, and parent involvement activities were more successful in the Louisville Replication Site and least successful in the Chattanooga Replication Site. Tables with statistical data are provided. Appendixes, which make up more than half the document, include an outline with descriptions of workshop modules, module evaluation forms, a self assessment questionnaire for administrators, a community resources survey form, MVP training topics outline, parent involvement/reaction form, self evaluation questionnaire for trainees, a pre-post test on orientation and mobility, an observational checklist of teacher competencies, sample handouts and evaluation forms for parents, a sample case study journal, an individualized education program rating sheet, and a sample community contact sheet in an illustrative case study.
