Bronx Multidiscipline Special Education Bilingual Program. E.S.E.A. Title VII Annual Evaluation Report, 1981-82.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
The Bronx (New York City) Multidiscipline Special Education Bilingual Program was designed to supplement the basic educational program for handicapped students with limited English proficiency in the Bronx Special Education Region. In 1980-81, the program served 132 Hispanic handicapped students in nine public and two private schools. Program services included direct individualized instruction, resource assistance, staff development, and the provision of opportunities for parent training and involvement. This report presents findings from the third cycle of evaluation of the program. The results indicate that: (1) participants demonstrated achievement gains in mathematics, although the criterion objective (measured in percentage of mastery of mathematics concepts) was not attained; (2) program objectives for English language proficiency, social studies, science, and English reading were met; (3) teachers had favorable attitudes toward the program and demonstrated mastery of training workshop concepts; and (4) parents who participated in training workshops successfully mastered the concepts taught. Recommendations for continued program success are presented. (MJL)
