The Principal's Blue Book on Special Education. Part II: Principal Instructional Leadership and Supervisory Practices in Special Education Programs.
Burrello, Leonard C.; And Others
This guide is designed to assist principals in the supervision of special education programs in their schools. The first of seven papers, by Ann Schnepf and Linda DeClue, offers a general overview of supervisory practices pertaining to special education. Subsequent papers review specific categories of students with disabilities and the supervision of special education programs for those students. They include: "Learning Disabilities" (George Van Horn and Linda DeClue); "Emotional Disabilities" (George Van Horn); "Substantial Disabilities" (George Van Horn); "Physical Disabilities" (Ronald DiOrio); "Communication Disabilities" (L. Annette Carter and Elizabeth McCrea); and "Sensory Disabilities" (Ronald DiOrio). Each paper follows generally the same format, outlining program objectives, components of a quality program, definition of the disabling condition, identifying characteristics, best educational practices in relation to that disability; role of regular and special education teachers, what a principal should look for in a classroom for students with that disability, needs for related services and transportation services, and references. An appendix contains an outline of the key provisions of Public Law 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act). (JDD)
