Paine, Stan C.; Fowler, Susan A.
The booklet addresses problems facing handicapped children beginning public school. Transition services to ease the adjustment from a special preschool to the public schools and increase the likelihood of academic and social progress are said to include active preparation of the child by teaching school skills he or she has not yet mastered. Followup services in the form of training or consultation to the public school teachers is also described. The public school's role is seen to include structuring the child's situation for success. Services of the Early Childhood Transition Program at the University of Kansas include a special preschool class for children with learning or behavioral problems. (CL)
