The Teacher Consultant: Strategies for Successful Mainstreaming of Physically or Health Impaired Children.
In helping to mainstream physically or health impaired children, the teacher consultant assesses a student's educational needs through testing, consultation with the school and doctor, parent interviews, and discussions with related services personnel. Implementing the instructional program includes being involved in the individualized education program report and providing supplementary instructional materials for the general educator. The teacher consultant must be a resource to classroom teachers about any educational, medical, or social problems interfering with the student's performance. Evaluation of the program and of student progress is a vital area of responsibility for the teacher consultant. (CL)
