Tools for Selecting Appropriate Learning Media.
Caton, Hilda, Ed.
This manual assists in developing educational goals and Individual Education Plans for children with visual impairments, by providing guidelines for selecting appropriate learning media for optimum literacy development. Part 1 describes the target populations, the members of the interdisciplinary team, and the team members' responsibilities. Part 2 outlines and describes the actual assessment procedure and part 3 provides a detailed set of instructions for evaluating child attributes and environmental attributes (educational environment, family, and home attributes). Appendices contain questionnaires, report forms, and checklists which reflect each stage of the assessment procedure. In addition, a list of assessment instruments with addresses of publishers is provided, as is a glossary of eye terms. (Contains 56 references.) (DB)
