Project REACH Administrator's Manual. PRAM.
Piuma, Chesca; And Others
The final volume in a series on Project REACH (Regular Education for All Children with Handicaps) is addressed to administrators involved in integrating severely disabled students into regular public schools. The manual is intended as a trouble-shooting tool with information on background theories and specific strategies. An introductory chapter setting forth the rationale for integration is followed by discussion of major issues, concepts, and terminology. Suggestions for accomplishing district-wide change focus on analyzing the environment; agreeing upon goals, objectives, an information base, and job responsibilities; and providing written material about the project. Suggestions are then delineated for central office staff and school site principals. Twelve frequently asked questions on logistics and costs are answered, and project components (inservice, parent-community mobilization, and structured interaction approach--the Inventory Process for Social Interaction) are examined in three chapters. The document concludes with an abstract bibliography on relevant special education literature. (CL)
