About this title:
Synopsis:
This is a workbook structured to teach preservice and inservice teachers and related personnel about the evaluation process that leads to the writing of an individualized education program for a handicapped child. Included in the text are six case studies of fictional children, ranging in age from kindergarten to high school, who have a variety of learning and behavior problems. Through step-by-step activities, the case-study approach simulates the evaluation process, beginning with initial referral and continuing through planning and collecting of evaluation data, required meetings, and plans for follow-up and re-evaluation. Various diagnostic approaches are introduced in the cases to allow the learner to compare and contrast their usefulness. The learner thus gains experience with many kinds of realistic situations through direct, active-although vicarious-involvement.

From the Publisher:
The case study method in this volume has several advantages: 1. It provides a format that stimulates the actual evaluation and planning process for the education of children with special needs. 2. It is a proven instructional technique in other disciplines such as business, medicine, and law. 3. It can be a valuable tool for preservice and inservice teachers training in special education. 4. It offers the opportunity to learn by trial and error in studying the simulated case of a child with special needs. 5. It supplements and enriches the training program. 6. It helps the learner develop the ability to think through situations objectively before making a decision.
