A Resource Manual for the Development and Evaluation of Special Programs for Exceptional Students. Volume III-J: Interagency Service Plans for the Profoundly Mentally Handicapped. Part 3: Partners in Planning--A Participant's Manual, July 1, 1981-June 30, 1983.
Leon County Schools, Tallahassee, FL.
The manual, part of a series on serving Florida's profoundly mentally handicapped (PMH) students through interagency coordination, presents a set of materials for self paced study. Each of four modules includes a pretest, a self-check exercise, a posttest, and questions that ask participants to apply information presented to their local circumstances. The four modules address the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): participants in service planning (roles of the state and local education agencies and the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services-HRS); statutes, rules, and regulations affecting service planning for PMH students (organizational differences between local school districts and HRS districts, possibilities for agency coordination for service plans and sevice plan reviews); documents used in service planning (components of different service plans, differences in reviews and scheduling of Individual Educational Programs and habilitation plans); and methods for cooperative planning (alternative methods, implementation requirements).
