A Study of Handicapped Children and the Special Education Program Needs in Northeast Minnesota.
Educational Management Services, Inc., New Brighton, Minn.
The central purpose of the study was to assess the capability of the schools and to recommend models for improving and extending special educational resources in Northeastern Minnesota. Four aspects of programing for handicapped children are delineated: the identification and incidence of handicapped children, an analysis of the educational needs, the means and patterns by which smaller school districts may organize to provide appropriate levels and kinds of services, and a design for a regional service system for supportive assistance to the total planning area. Recommendations of the study include organization of an intermediate special education district, establishment of a regional resource system, and formation of interdistrict special education cooperatives. The recommendations are dealt with in some detail including numerous tables to reinforce the discussion. (CD)
