SCOPE OF PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES.
ECKERSON, LOUISE OMWAKE; SMITH, HYRUM M.
PART I OF THIS PAMPHLET DESCRIBES THE INTERPROFESSIONAL RESEARCH COMMISSION ON PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES, WHICH WAS STARTED IN 1962 BY THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION AND FINANCED BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH FOR A 5-YEAR PROGRAM. THE REST OF THE PAMPHLET DEALS WITH STATISTICS AND SPECIFIC PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES. OF THE 60,000 FULL-TIME-EQUIVALENT PUPIL PERSONNEL SPECIALISTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 27,180 SECONDARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS ENGAGE IN PRIVATE COUNSELING, GROUP COUNSELING, CONSULTATION, PLACEMENT, AND EVALUATION. THE MAJOR ADVANTAGE HELD BY THE 2,254 SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKERS IS THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF, AND ENTRY INTO, THE COMMUNITY'S SOCIAL RESOURCES. SEVENTY-SIX PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS HAVE SPEECH AND HEARING SERVICES TO AID THOSE CHILDREN (5 PERCENT) WITH COMMUNICATION DISORDERS. OTHER SERVICES ARE PSYCHOLOGICAL, PSYCHIATRIC, NURSING, OTHER MEDICAL, AND ATTENDANCE. THE FORECAST FOR PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES IS THAT (1) THEY WILL BE IMPROVED WITH HIGHER STANDARDS FOR PERSONNEL, (2) UNIVERSITIES WILL EXTEND INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, (3) CERTIFICATION WILL INCLUDE INTERNSHIP RATHER THAN TEACHING EXPERIENCE, (4) AIDES WILL BE USED FOR SUBPROFESSIONAL FUNCTIONS, AND (5) RESEARCH WILL BE INCREASINGLY USED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS FS 5.223--23045, FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402, FOR $0.35. (PR)
