Description
Resource room-based practice is carried out during the semester. For three weeks students will have to participate in the daily functioning of a preschool resource room in order data that would allow them to provide a comprehensive assessment of a child with special educational needs and an overall recording of the pedagogical work done in the resource room. Students will also pay four field visits to institutions and settings that provide services for the disabled. Assessment is done with a written assignment on the evaluation of a disabled child and the study of the resource room as well as students’ report on the field visits.
