A Model Public School, Data-Based Early Education Program for Rural Handicapped Children. Final Report.
Cone, John D.
The document contains the final report of a model educational program for handicapped preschoolers in Preston County (West Virginia). Section I offers the history of the project and background information on the geographic location, operating characteristics, children served, and staffing pattern. Section II outlines the original project objectives while section III covers the objectives accomplished in the following areas: services for children, services for parents, staff development, demonstration/dissemination, and administration/management/evaluation. A final section reviews findings and recommendations. It is noted that data show statistically significant growth in most areas assessed; that products revised and/or developed include a revision of the West Virginia Assessment and Tracking System (WVAATS), curricular materials, and a measure of parental involvement; and that standard program efficiency information would be useful to distribute among project directors. Appendixes make up half the document and include a copy of the WVAATS; sample curriculums in visual, auditory, and tactile responsiveness; a parent needs assessment survey form and a parent/family involvement index; an outline of a model for parental involvement in the special education program; the text of a slide-tape show; sample newspaper articles; and a paper on conrolled evaluation of instruction methods.
