Summary

This monograph discusses preparation of teachers for the educationally handicapped. It is intended to be a useful primer (containing basic definitions, conceptualizations, bibliographic references, and examples) for a newcomer to the field while also including specific formulations (positions on issues and suggestions for resolving problems) of interest or value to the professional. Organization is in three parts: teacher education in general, the educationally handicapped child, and teacher for the educationally handicapped. Chapter 1 explores issues related to planning, implementing, and evaluating teacher education programs. Chapter 2 focuses on problems related to luring, selecting, and keeping high quality personnel. Chapter 3 hypothesizes that the educationally handicapped consist of three subgroups: at one end of the continuum those who actually have major disorders interfering with learning and at the other end those whose problem stems primarily from the deficiencies of the learning environment. Chapter 4 suggests a set of sequential and hierarchical teaching strategies involving a two-step process by which teachers can identify and attempt to meet the remedial needs of youngsters in each subgroup. Chapter 5 takes the position that there is a need for the educationally handicapped specialist and suggests the appropriate range of his duties. Chapter 6 offers opinions regarding the recruitment, preparation, and certification of teachers for the educationally handicapped. (JS)
