Effective Policies in the Provision of Related Services. A Report of the Handicapped Public Policy Analysis Project. Volume 2.
Farrow, Frank; Rogers, Cheryl
The study documents effective state and local policies in providing related services to handicapped children as required by PL 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The areas reviewed include those state policies which clarify education agencies' responsibilities, and those which increase the resources available for related services by securing other state agencies' cooperation. The volume also examines local policies which (1) obtain resources from other human service agencies, (2) pool resources to increase the availability of services, and (3) seek to develop new programs for specific population groups such as emotionally disturbed students. Examples are given of policy implementation including state or local actions in the following localities: Michigan; Washington; California; Connecticut; Maine; Anne Arundel County, Maryland; Upper Peninsula in Michigan; Capitol Area Region, Maine; Weld County, Colorado; Independence, Missouri; and Montgomery County, Maryland. Unresolved issues concerned with related services are identified including the limits (if any) to the responsibilities of education agencies, how education agencies can meet their financial obligations to provide related services, and how to share resources with local agencies to provide related services.
