Educators' Guide to Effective Special Education Materials. 1983-84 Edition (As Reported by 500 Special Educators).
Ash, Paul, Ed.
The catalog lists special education materials identified by approximately 500 special educators (through the Teacher Initiated Materials Evaluation Process) as effective with handicapped and gifted children. The evaluation process is built on the premise that teachers in contact with handicapped children know the most effective materials. Materials identified by this process are arranged by exceptionality area, age level, and curriculum area. The following exceptionality areas are included: preschool handicaps; mild, trainable, and severe/profound retardation; communications handicaps; emotional handicaps; learning disabilities; deafness and hearing impairments; blindness and visual impairments; physical handicaps; multiple handicaps; and giftedness. Information on each entry includes title and publisher. A list of approximately 400 publishers and their addresses is also provided. Among curricular areas represented are professional and reference, language development, perceptual and motor skills, social development, arithmetic, reading and language arts, science, social studies, and prevocational skills.
