A Model for Providing Technical Assistance for Educators of Students with Severe Handicaps in Rural Areas.
Heller, Kathryn Wolff
This paper discusses a model for providing technical assistance to teachers of students with severe/profound mental handicaps who teach in rural areas. The model, known as the Institute for Educators of Students with Severe/Profound Mental Handicaps, is presently in its second successful year in the state of Georgia. Its unique design provides a practicum and methods course during the summer with follow-up visits to the participants' actual classrooms during the school year. The model design, its evaluation data, strengths and weaknesses, and administrative concerns for implementation are addressed. (Author/TS)
