Around the World with S.O.S.: A Supplemental Educational Program for Students Functioning in the Sensorimotor Stage.
The 33 lesson plans are intended to enhance the sensorimotor intelligence period of severely/profoundly handicapped children. It is stated that the conceptual framework of the "Stimulating Our Senses" (SOS) program is based on the description of sensorimotor intelligence by J. Piaget and attempts to strengthen growth and development in the following four areas which usually are underdeveloped in severely handicapped children: 1) level of awareness; 2) movement; 3)manipulation of the environment; and 4) posture and locomotion. With few exceptions the lesson plans describe objectives, activities, and materials needed. Lessons usually provide information on body parts, ethnic experience, holidays, seasons, and general concepts. Appendixes list materials and music selections as well as detailed instructions for assessment, selection of objectives, and data keeping. Forms are included to monitor progress toward behavioral objectives. (MC)
