Spungin, Susan Jay; Jastrzembska, Zofja S.
The report evaluates and describes a series of 18 regional inservice training workshops designed for school psychologists working with visually impaired students. The project's background is described in terms of the need for school psychologists to be trained to work with the specific problems manifested by visually impaired public school students. A discussion of program planning reviews preliminary survey results. The section on program implementation materials examines regional coverage and location, psychologist, recruitment and selection, attendance, workshop content, workshop materials (including participants' lists, and displays of books, tests and teaching aids); the workshop model, network list, and project spin-offs. Evaluation information on project objectives is detailed, and it is noted that the workshops resulted in increased positive self ratings on work with visually handicapped students. Among appended information are sample agendas, lists of materials, and participant questionnaires. (CL)
