The eight program components are described individually and include: aquatic therapy; community education; computer-assisted instruction/occupational therapy; occupational and physical therapy; library/media services; TMI summer school; AI summer school; and curriculum review. For each program component information is provided on staffing, aides' responsibilities, instruction, and student attainment of objectives.
