Handicapped Children in Developing Countries: Assessment, Curriculum and Instruction.
Baine, David
A discussion of teaching and testing methods for children with disabilities focuses on techniques appropriate for use in developing countries. The book has several purposes. Its aims are to: (1) discuss practical, step-by-step methods that can be used readily in existing classrooms; (2) describe ideal methods and materials as long-term goals to work toward as classroom conditions improve; (3) describe methods for developing ecologically valid testing and teaching materials to fit unique, contemporary cultural, social, economic, geographic, urban, and rural environments; (4) explain methods for developing curricula designed to teach skills likely to be required under future conditions resulting from technological, industrial, social, and cultural changes and rural-to-urban migration; (5) describe the theories, philosophy, and supporting evidence for teaching and testing methods; and (6) provide examples of actual situations in both urban and rural areas of developing countries. Chapters address: characteristics of curricula used in developing nations; problems arising from adoption of western curricula; the use of ecological inventories to develop curricula; teaching methods; methods for teaching disabled children in large, regular classrooms; teaching students with limited hearing or vision; testing problems and recommendations; and functional testing.
