From Handicapped to Helping Others with Handicaps.
Ollie, Phyllis; Palay, Sidney
A case study is presented of a 17 year old physically handicapped mildly retarded girl who was mainstreamed in a magnet school designed to foster interest in the social sciences. Through cooperative efforts of classroom teachers, special educators, the work experience teacher, and administrator, a program was developed that resulted in significant progress. The student worked as a part time teacher aide during school and as a volunteer day care aide during the summer. Her half time mainstreaming experience changed to a full time one, and the cooperative efforts of staff have laid the foundation for similar future efforts with other exceptional children. Charts and evaluation are appended. (CL)
