The Preschool Program of School District 21.
Lowenthal, Barbara
ICEC Quarterly, v31 n2 p14-17 Spr 1982
The history and effectiveness of the Preschool Program of School District 21 (Wheeling, Illinois), an innovative program for handicapped preschoolers, are described. Referrals come from a variety of sources and result in screening tests conducted by an interdisciplinary team. Individualized Education Programs for enrolled program children are drawn up. The curriculum stresses language learning, gross and fine motor coordination, cognition, social perception and self-help skills. Ongoing evaluation is incorporated into the program. Parent participation is sought through regular conferences, observation, and workshops and education groups. Follow-up evaluation revealed that 36% of former students (January 1973-June 1977) are in regular K-3 classes. (CL)
