Pre-Placement Program for Severely Multi-Handicapped Deaf-Blind Children, 1980-1981. Final Evaluation Report.
Tobias, Robert; And Others
Evaluation of the sixth and final year of operation for a preplacement program for 13 severely multiply handicapped deaf blind children, located in the Industrial Home for the Blind, is reported. The program is explained to prepare students for entrance into their existing special education programs. Qualitative findings on the physical setting, equipment, supplies, activities, staff, and transportation are presented. Quantitative findings focus on pupil achievement (criteria were achieved in mobility and self help skills but not in communication, social, or psychomotor-perceptual skills) and parent involvement (all of the parents were involved in the program through school visits, attendance at meetings, telephone contacts, or rehabilitation conferences). Recommendations are offered for program improvement. (CL)
