Sensitivity and Special Populations Project Videotape Programs: Trainer's Manual.
A training manual to promote the implementation of a mediated training program to sensitize faculty and other postsecondary staff to the needs and special concerns of disabled students is presented. The training program was developed through the Sensitivity and Special Populations project at California State University, Chico. The training program consists of five videotape programs on the following topics: characteristics of various disabilities and attitudes of the nonhandicapped, interpersonal communication and special modes for the disabled, accessibility of the campus, technology and devices, and instructional adaptations. Specific contents of the manual include: a scheduling checklist to assist the trainer in completing details for workshops; a schedule of events and times for the program components; overview of each of the five videotape programs, including discusson topics, helpful hints, and learning objectives; a list of steps for evaluating the program; a problem solving chart that presents advice and lists resources to serve the disabled college student; and various appendices. The problem solving chart resources are divided into the following four subgroups, which are coded: the user's skills that can be adapted to meet student needs, class members, departmental resources, and student services. The chart identifies research by postsecondary activities (i.e., exams) and seven disabilities. Appendices include: evaluation results; pre/post attitude scales, knowledge tests, and self assessment of skills questionnaires; and materials that can be used for overhead transparencies. (SEW)
