Preparing Special Educators for Teacher Consultation.
Warger, Cynthia L., Ed.; Aldinger, Loviah E., Ed.
The publication defines the nature of special education consultation and presents various options through which training can be provided by college and university departments of special education. The first three papers present the realities of special education consultation as currently practiced: "Serving Special Children through Teacher Consultation" (J. C. Conoley), "Setting the Stage for Successful School Consultation" (L. Idol-Maestas), and "The Teacher Consultant at the Secondary Level: Just Right of Center" (V. Ryan and R. Kokoszka). The following four papers discuss essential aspects of either the process or the substance of special education consultation: "Consultant Beliefs Which Make a Significant Difference in Consultation" (A. Menlo), "The Human Dimension of Consultation" (M. E. Carroll), "Modeling a Process of Problem Identification" (L. N. Hodgson), and "The Self-Documentation Model: A Process for Consultation with Experienced Teachers in Special Education Practica" (P. C. Wood et al). The final three papers contain descriptions of formal training programs in special education consultation: "A Graduate Preparation Program in Special Education Teacher Consultation" (C. L. Warger and L. E. Aldinger), "Adding Consultation Skills to Your Repertoire: A Training Model" (J. M. McPhail and N. J. Eiss), and "Special Education Teacher Consultation Training Programs" (M.
