DEVELOPMENT CENTERS FOR HANDICAPPED MINORS.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
PROVISIONS FOR PILOT CHILD CARE CENTERS FOR PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED AND MENTALLY RETARDED MINORS WERE MADE BY THE CALIFORNIA STATE LEGISLATURE IN 1959. ADDITIONAL FUNDS WERE PROVIDED IN 1961 AND 1965. BY NOVEMBER 1965, FOUR CENTERS WERE IN OPERATION AND FOUR MORE CENTERS WERE BEING ESTABLISHED. THESE EIGHT CENTERS SERVED 348 HANDICAPPED CHILDREN. AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED (1) REMOVAL OF THE CEILING ON THE NUMBER OF CENTERS AND (2) ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT. PROBLEMS OF STAFFING, TRANSPORTATION, AVAILABLE SPACE, LENGTH OF ACTIVITY TIME, FEES PAID BY PARENTS, EQUIPMENT, AND THE GREAT NUMBERS OF CHILDREN NOT SERVED BY THE PROGRAMS WERE ALSO NOTED. APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR A DEVELOPMENT CENTER AND MINUTES OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE WERE INCLUDED. (GB)
