The Special Child: Instructor's Guide.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
This guide was designed for use by postsecondary child development instructors in programs that prepare students to be child caregivers or directors. The guide is especially useful for instructors of lecture-laboratory courses on mainstreaming children with special needs into regular child care settings. The guide is organized into six units that cover the following topics: understanding mainstreaming, the caregiver's role in screening and assessment, understanding special needs, promoting positive interactions, learning in the mainstreamed child care program, and supporting parents. At the beginning of each unit, performance objectives and references are listed. Suggested classroom learning experiences provide instructors with teaching strategies to help students achieve the objectives. The unit test includes multiple-choice and essay questions. Transparency and handout masters, which follow Unit VI, may be reproduced as needed for classroom use. The instructor's guide also contains a glossary, glossary test, answer keys, and a 17-page bibliography. Special sections are provided on coordinating student laboratory assignments, evaluating students, and determining readability by using the Fog Index. (KC)
