Transdisciplinary Integrative Methods for Special Education Programming.
Klug, Beverly J.; Morrison, Patricia G.
The Training and Learning Center (TLC), located on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University provides an opportunity for special education majors to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The TLC program incorporates a transdisciplinary approach, using the services of specialists in speech and language therapy, audiology, physical therapy, and counseling in integration with special education programming for preschool handicapped children. A cooperative venture between the local public school system and the university, the program also features supportive interagency efforts. The goals for the program include making all education majors aware of handicapping conditions, providing special education majors with specific skills to work with the children, and ultimately providing a smooth transition for the handicapped child into the public school system.
