Charting Changes: A Conversation with Norris Haring
Teagarden, James; Zabel, Robert H.; Kaff, Marilyn
Intervention in School and Clinic, v49 n2 p121-126 Nov 2013
The authors present an interview with Dr. Norris Haring, University of Washington, USA, professor emeritus and founding director of the Experimental Education Center on Human Development and Disability. They report on the profound impact Dr. Haring has had on the field of educating children with disabilities. Dr. Haring was the founding president and the first editor of the "Journal of the American Association for the Education of the Severely and Profoundly Handicapped." He is also credited with pioneering leadership in developing approaches for teaching physically-challenged children to become self-sufficient and successful. He is internationally recognized for drawing attention to educational development and has offered proof that education directly affects behavior. Dr. Haring is widely credited for pioneering the incorporation of "precision teaching" into a classroom-wide model. He has witnessed and guided many pioneering developments in special education during a distinguished career that continues to have a positive impact on generations of children and students. His decades of promoting and charting the positive changes are a model of service to the field.
