Intended for regular teachers with mildly handicapped learners, the handbook covers techniques for adapting instruction, for compensatory instruction, for remedial instruction, and for teaching basic survival skills. An introduction surveys types of appropriate modifications for mainstreaming. Adaptive techniques discussed include the following: adjusting instruction for mainstreamed students, adapting textbooks, lowering readability, tape recording, adapting assignments, adapting study guides, using learning contracts, using motivational methods, and adapting tests. Techniques for compensatory instruction are discussed for language arts, mathematics, and vocabulary. Sample techniques include using a typewriter, organizing the notebook, making a multiplication aid, and using a keyword mnemonic method to recall vocabulary. Provided for remedial instruction are games appropriate for various subject areas (such as crossword math and a see through study sheet), techniques and materials for written expression, remedial reading activities, and spelling techniques. The final section covers survival skills with suggestions for teaching study skills, flowcharting arithmetic tasks, and learning to fill out forms. The appendix consists of suggested forms used for a mainstreaming program including a report form from the regular class to the learning disability resource room, a mainstreaming progress report, and a weekly assignment sheet.
