Mainstreaming Handicapped Preschoolers. Proceedings of a Topical Workshop. TADscripts '82.
Anderson, Joan; Black, Talbot
The document offers proceedings from a Technical Assistance Development System (TADS) topical workshop designed to explore the implications of mainstreaming for early childhood education. The first section contains an adaptation of the keynote address by A. Turnbull titled "Integration of Handicapped Children in Home, School, and Community." Turnbull uses examples from her personal experiences to illustrate problems and means of integrating a handicapped child into the family. A second section offers abstracts of 19 workshop sessions. Among the topics covered are the following: Project KIK (Kentucky's Individualized Kindergarten), the ERIN (Early Recognition Intervention Network) outreach program, parent training, daycare programs serving handicapped children, research implications for mainstreaming preschoolers, effects of early childhood mainstreaming, sensitivity training for mainstreaming, and the family resource network. A final section summarizes participants' reactions to workshop experiences. Noted among reactions is that comments support the intent that the workshop not solely promote mainstreaming but examine benefits and detriments to children, parents, and staff. Appended are a list of presenters, a list of audiovisual media shown, and the workshop agenda. (SW)
