Adapting instructional materials for mainstreamed students by Jane Burnette( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Office of Special Education Programs requires that teaching materials be designed so that mildly and moderately handicapped students could use them without being singled out; this requirement resulted in materials that benefit all students in the regular classroom. This Issue Brief discusses the procedures and techniques used by these projects to develop their materials

The use of explicitly trained peers to facilitate the social behavior of autistic children : final report by Andrew L Egel( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1990 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper reviews the literature on the training of social behavior in autistic children and reports on a project which developed and evaluated a program which explicitly trained mildly handicapped peers to facilitate the social behavior of autistic children. The extensive literature review looks at the etiology of social deficits in autistic children and treatment of social deficits, specifically peer mediated intervention. In the study, three non-autistic but mildly handicapped subjects (ages 5.7 to 8.7 years) with good social skills were given explicit training in sharing with and praising one of three autistic subjects (ages 5.5 to 6.5 years) using modeling, practice with feedback, and training probe techniques. Results indicated that modeling plus direct prompting of interactions between a peer-trainer and an autistic student was an effective strategy; that this training increased both the frequency and duration of interactions; that these increases generalized to a play group with untrained peers present; and that for two of the autistic students, peer-training resulted in increased interactions with untrained peers. Seven pages of references are provided. (Dr)
Beyond drill and practice : learner-centered software by Reston, VA ERIC Clearinghouse on Handicapped and Gifted Children( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This one-page abstract describes a report titled "Microcomputers in Special Education: Beyond Drill and Practice" by Susan Russell, which focuses on a project that created a consortium to promote research, training, and dissemination in learner-centered software for elementary and middle-school students with learning disabilities and emotional disorders. Members of the consortium included the Technical Education Research Center, Lesley College (a teacher training institution in Cambridge, Massachusetts), the Massachusetts Department of Education, local education agencies, and members of the research community. Activities carried out by the consortium have included: (1) a national survey of teachers and administrators on the use of learner-centered software; (2) identification of promising practices; (3) establishment of a local special interest group of educators using learner-centered software; (4) development of a practicum course in the use of such software; (5) establishment of research collaborations to explore such activities as using word processors to teach writing, involving learning-disabled students in scientific investigations, and teaching below-grade-level children to understand mathematical concepts without the burden of calculation; and (6) preparation of a handbook for special educators.

Brain research : implications for the education of exceptional children by Ronald L Rubenzer( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The one-page abstract summarizes "Brain Research: Implications for the Education of Exceptional Children," an ERIC Computer Search Reprint containing bibliographic information and abstracts of 115 documents. Citations are described in five sections: learning disabilities, autism, other learning handicaps, assessment techniques, and instructional techniques. Although some studies have found an unusual reliance on one hemisphere by the learning disabled, the relationship of these findings to learning disorders is unclear. Despite the popularity of hemispherically related explanations for learning disabilities, a review of research concluded that there are strong empirical arguments to the contrary. Studies of autism found some evidence of left hemisphere dysfunction as well as evidence of neurochemical disturbance. Studies of other learning handicaps (such as deafness, behavior disorders, handedness, brain damage) were less frequent. Work on assessment techniques includes tests and electrophysical measurement techniques used to determine hemispheric preference, identify neurological problems, and identify subtypes of learning disability. Most studies on instructional techniques stress that education currently emphasizes left brain activities and that greater use of right train and integrated activities should be fostered. Sixty-two footnotes are provided. (DB)
