Baca, Leonard, Ed.; And Others
The monograph presents eight papers delivered at the 1985 symposium on exceptional Hispanic children and youth. R. Rueda and J. Mercer begin with "A Predictive Analysis of Decision-Making Practices with Limited English Proficient Handicapped Students" which examines the generalizability of a path model to the referral process in two urban districts. J. Cummins follows with a discussion of the importance of the societal context in "Psychological Assessment of Minority Students: Out of Context, Out of Focus, Out of Control?" Traditional assessment practices and attempts to alter them for minority and/or culturally different students are covered in "The Assessment of the Bilingual Exceptional Child: Trends and Models" by L. Maheady. E. Duran then describes "A Model Program Serving Severely Handicapped and Autistic Students of Limited and Non-English Competencies." Administrator education is the focus of a paper by E. Brizzi and A. Gromfin "The Bilingual Special Education Administration Intern Project: New Partnerships in Training." J. Rodriguez reviews another such program, at Bridgewater State College (Massachusetts), in "The College Response to Bilingual Special Education: Training Program for Faculty and Administrators." In two concluding papers, A. Barona analyzes "The Role of a National Task Force on Bilingual Special Education," and J. Yates presents "An Overview of Research in Bilingual Special Education." An Inventory of Materials Displayed at the NCBE/BUENO Materials Exchange, the symposium's agenda, and a list of symposium participants concludes the document. (CL)
