Special Education Children of Military Families: A Survey of Present Services.
Ottman, Ronald A.
Questionnaires were completed by superintendents and special education teachers on the delivery of services to special education children of military dependents in a state with several military installations. Questionnaires addressed such issues as availability of services, program evaluation, knowledgability of military families regarding federal and state mandates, and their need for assistance. Results revealed that superintendents and teachers of the mildly handicapped generally believed that services were adequate while teachers of moderately to severely/profoundly handicapped students believed services to be inadequate and improvement needed. Data indicated the needs for respite care, development of standardized forms to ensure educational continuity despite mores, and provision of parent workshops to keep them informed of their rights as well as of local support agencies.
