Miller, Ronald C.; And Others
The report describes accomplishments of a program serving approximately 2500 handicapped students fomerly educated in New York state operated or supported schools. The program offered supplemental services to eligible students either through teacher training or through provision of materials and equipment. Curriculum areas in component 1 included reduction of maladaptive behavior, societal/survival skills, communication/language development, reading, mathematics, and career education. Component 2 provided instructional supplies and equipment in the areas of activities of daily living, career education, and communication/language development. Achievement data revealed that program objectives were at least partially met, with the majority of students acquiring at least one new skill during the course of the program in at least one of the following areas: activities of daily living, reduction of maladaptive behavior, societal/survival skills, communication/language development, career/pre-vocational education, or reading and mathematics. Observation and interviews indicated that the program-provided supplies and equipment generally met the students' needs and were preceived as effective supplements to basic instruction. The program reported an increase in students and materials and equipment compared with the previous year's cycle. Among conclusions formed are that the participant evaluation of workshops and other training activities should be expanded. (CL)
