Desiderata Programs: A Unit of Phoenix Union High School District #210.
Buck, Michael T.; Markson, Howard J.
The two Desiderata programs which each serve 36 severely emotionally handicapped and emotionally handicapped/educationally mentally handicapped students as part of the Phoenix (Arizona) High School program are described. Results of the evaluation concluded that the two programs should be merged for consistency of programing, cost effectiveness, and wider offering of academic courses and experiences. Individual sections are devoted to the current Desiderata program philosophy, needs of the multiproblem student, the program's educational component (four levels), and the Desiderata clinical program (which stresses group therapy). Appendixes provide state and federal legislation mandating special education, the program budgets, and diagnostic categories of the students. (DB)
