Maryland State Implementation Grant. Final Report, September, 1976 through August, 1978.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Office of Special Education.
The final report of the Maryland State Department of Education's 2 year implementation of Project SURE (Special Utilization of Resources for the Early Education of the Handicapped) provides documentation of the results and consequences of the Project. A chart lists the objectives and results for four major project goals: (1) the creation of an Early Childhood Staff Position in the State Department of Education, (2) the establishment of an administrtive network identifying services for preschool handicapped children in Baltimore, (3) the development of a center based classroom model, and (4) implementation of a parent training component. The project resulted in direct intervention with 25 children and their families, evaluation of 20 additional children, and the creation of an urban model to serve approximately 1,000 children. Tables and appendixes deal with the referral process, project financial status, an Early Childhood State of the State Report, the agency performance plan, and a discussion paper on early childhood education presented at a January, 1978, meeting of the State Board of Education.
