Intended for use with preservice regular class teachers, the manual presents activities to provide an orientation to handicapped students. Information is included on objectives, time requirements, materials, and procedures. The first section focuses on attitudes and includes eight activities designed to help educators clarify their feelings about teaching mainstreamed handicapped students. Section 2 presents two activities regarding implications of federal legislation. Section 3, on understanding exceptional children, provides information on characteristics of persons with mental disabilities, learning disabilities, and emotional disabilities/behavior disorders. The general educator's role in the education of handicapped students is the focus of seven tasks in Section 4, including ones on the components and preparation of individualized education programs. The final section describes techniques (such as behavior management and curriculum adaptations) for educating handicapped students in the regular classroom. (CL)
