Planning Special Education in the Pacific Islands.
Lehrman, Raymond H.
Concerning the education of exceptional children in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the paper outlines the seven-step educational planning process utilized by the Special Education Division of the Trust Territory Department of Education. In initial planning phases the process is product oriented, not process oriented. Particular attention is paid to the first three steps of the planning process - identification, definition, and analysis of the problem - which are taken prior to formulation of possible solution models and selection of best solutions. The components of each phase are defined, and samples of problem analysis efforts, in diagram form, are included. Geographic and demographic information on the Trust Territory is presented, present services for handicapped children are listed, major problems to be resolved in developing programs are summarized, and the philosophy and goals of special education in the Trust Territory are stated.
