The Team Concept in Special Education. CASE Information Dissemination Packet.
Brown, Janice M.
This information packet for special education administrators addresses the team concept as a means of providing special education services at the local school level to mainstreamed students with mild handicaps and provides examples of such programs. In the first three sections, major purposes and goals of teams are reviewed, including provision of inservice training, direct teacher assistance, and improvement of student support systems. Five documents in the fourth section present examples of common team concepts and actual programs. These include: "Teacher Assistance Teams: A Model for Within-Building Problem Solving" (James C. Chalfant and others); "Breaking Down Classroom Walls: Establishing Building Based Teams" (Gil Bushey and Lynn Baker); "Building Support Teams" (Mike Horvath); "Building Team Guide" from Grand Rapids (Michigan) Public Schools; and the section on Student Support Teams from "Educational Planning for Handicapped Students--Procedures Manual" of the Minneapolis (Minnesota) Public Schools. Finally, six federal projects and programs related to the team concept are summarized, including name of a contact person, location, title, program description, and major objectives. (DB)
