"Walk across That Stage": A Case Study of a Program for Neurologically Impaired and Learning Disabled Students at Hutton High.
The case study describes a program for learning disabled and neurologically impaired high schoolers. A historical review notes the school's community and the evaluation of the mainstreaming program. Administrative details are briefly summarized, as are the unique characteristics of the teacher and aide in the resource room program that serves 12 students. Excerpts from student interviews are presented, and the curriculum focusing on basic skills is described. Also described is the vocational component which provides field trips to community work sites. Additional aspects of the case study include summaries from interviews with school faculty, both those who support the mainstreaming program and those who do not. Difficulties involved in definitions of learning disabilities, administrative responsibility, and in making disabled students fit into a very achievement-oriented program are cited. (CL)
