Creating an Information Base for Program Collaboration. Workbook Series for Providing Services to Children with Handicaps and Their Families.
van Dyck, Peter C.; And Others
This publication describes Utah's Handicapped Child Data Project, an interagency effort to share information among agencies dealing with developmentally disabled persons and establish a central registry. Five action steps in such a venture are noted, including identifying potential sources of information on state and individual levels, decreasing the use of jargon, signing agreements of understanding, and implementing an automated central data system. Three stages of information exchange are described and component steps reviewed: gathering information about an individual child, establishing program to program or agency to agency communication, and building a statewide system. The efforts of the Handicapped Child Data Project are reviewed in terms of history, organization, policies, and sample data screens. (CL)
