Quality Education for the Severely Handicapped.
Wilcox, Barbara, Ed.; York, Robert, Ed.
Eleven papers given at a conference on issues in educational services for severely handicapped students are presented. R. Thompson, B. Wilcox, and R. York begin with "The Federal Program for the Severely Handicapped: Historical Perspective, Analysis, and Review." Six program elements in quality education are then addressed in the following papers: "Child Assessment" (O. White); "Curricula for the Severely Handicapped--Components and Evaluation Criteria" (J. Reichle, et al.); "Support Services" (C. Peterson); "Family Involvement in the Educational Process of Severely Handicapped Students--State of the Art and Directions for the Future" (L. Vincent, et al.); "Review and Analysis of Professional Preparation for the Severely Handicapped" (N. Haring); and "Evaluation" (H. Fredericks, et al.). Service delivery issues are examined in the next three papers: "Technology in the Education of the Severely Handicapped" (P. Campbell, W. Bricker, and L. Esposito); "Service Delivery--The Question of Categories" (T. Fox and D. Guess); and "Service Delivery Issues--Integrated Educational Systems" (B. Wilcox and W. Sailor). A final paper focuses on program development ("Model Development Strategies to Improve Educational Services for Severely Handicapped People" by S. Paine and G. Bellamy). (CL)
