Sailor, Wayne; Goetz, Lori
The final report presents summary data on the accomplishments of a project serving deaf-blind children who were also severely, multiply handicapped. The project operated a model classroom for six to eight students in a San Francisco public school to develop and demonstrate innovative educational practices and assessment systems for visual and auditory functioning. Five major components of the project are analyzed separately, and evaluation data for each component are presented: (1) model classroom component (application of operant principles to sensory assessment); (2) innovative practices (including the use of a continuous correction error-correction procedure and the development of an expressive manual signing curriculum); (3) products (assessment and program manuals); (4) inservice training and workshops (intensive individualized inservice, training workshops, and informational presentations); and (5) dissemination (workshops and replication of the project's model classroom).
