Preschool Special Education. Research & Resources on Special Education: Issue V.
National Conference of State Legislatures, Washington, DC.; American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National Association of State Boards of Education, Alexandria, VA.; Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
This issue brief addresses policy and administrative questions in preschool special education. Background information is provided on the history of early intervention and predictions for the future are made. Research is presented on early childhood special education effectiveness (longitudinal and shorter-term studies and third-party evaluations) and cost-effectivenss. A discussion of legislation covers the history of federal initiatives as well as the status of state mandates to serve preschool handicapped children. Examples of state and national preschool special education programs are offered (Wisconsin's Portage Project, Missouri's Saturday School Program, Kentucky's Individualized Kindergarten, Project Home Base and Head Start). A final section focuses on three key questions and implications for policymakers: definitions of the population, certification of teachers of very young handicapped children, and integration of handicapped preschoolers.
