A Series of Training Modules on Educating Children and Youth with Dual Sensory and Multiple Impairments. Volume 1: Parent Training Modules.
Anketell, Mary, Ed.; And Others
This first volume in a two-volume series which contains training modules on the education of children and youth with dual sensory and multiple impairments focuses on training parents to be knowledgeable consumers of intervention strategies and educational services for their children. The four modules in this volume address the following areas: (1) characteristics and needs of children with dual sensory and multiple impairments; (2) facilitation of functional communication; (3) a functional approach to curriculum development; and (4) related services and the transdisciplinary approach to service delivery. A general introduction lists recommended trainer competencies and describes module format. Modules are intended to be presented in one to four 90-minute sessions. Each module consists of six sections: general information or overview, training instructions, one or more topic sections (depending on the breadth of coverage), sources of additional information, evaluation measures, and appendices.
