Teaching exceptional children in all America's schools : a first course for teachers and principals by Maynard C Reynolds( Book )

10 editions published between 1977 and 1982 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for pre and inservice training of regular and special education teachers, the textbook offers a mainstream approach to educating handicapped and gifted students. The first two chapters give an historical overview of the development of special education and discuss some of the major conceptual shifts that seem to be inherent in the mainstreaming movement. Chapter 3 focuses on assessment of both programs and students, and chapter 4 considers how student and program assessments can be matched to provide individualized programs for each exceptional student with particular emphasis on the parents' role in the planning process. Seven chapters provide information on the state of the art in the following areas: giftedness and talents, mental retardation, learning disabilities and behavior disorders, physical and health impairments, speech problems, hearing impairments, and visual impairments. Additional chapters cover emerging trends in school personnel roles and instructional procedures; emerging programs relating to early childhood education, child neglect and abuse, drug handicapped learners, and school age parents; and present problems and issues that appear to hold strong portents for the future development of public school operations. For each issue considered, the authors contrast the prevailing practices with preferred approaches. Each of the 14 chapters begins with suggestions for students and instructor on how to develop the topic into a learning unit with additional resources and activities. Appended are the names and addresses of organizations agencies concerned with exceptional persons and information on teacher training materials. (Sbh)

After a chapter describing how two schools began to use an inclusive approach, five chapters focus on these 12 characteristics with examples from the participating schools.

Public school classes for the emotionally handicapped : a research analysis, a research project conducted for the Council for Exceptional Children, National Education Association by William Charles Morse( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study identified themes running through special class programs for the emotionally handicapped, analyzed classroom procedures, and described the teachers' backgrounds, attitudes, and purposes and the students' perceptions of the programs. Initially, 117 public school programs for the emotionally handicapped were located and surveyed by mail; then 54 programs were selected for site visits. Areas surveyed were the origin and operation of the programs, general characteristics of pupils, and classroom conditions and operations. The following conclusions were drawn: pupils, teachers, and observers found positive change as a result of participation, and program types were shown related to changes; specific pattern and uniformity in approach were lacking; school personnel realized that their original program plans required extensive modification and that flexibility was needed; program types differed widely; programs maintained a school related focus; and clinical support and understanding were helpful. The major statistical findings and evaluations are provided. (BW)
