Additional state-operated and/or state-supported programs including hospital programs, regional programs, private agency education programs, trainable mental retardation programs, the talented and gifted program, and early intervention are also described. Data on the two state schools for individuals with blindness or deafness are presented next. The second section covers compensatory education programs including the Chapter I program, the Indian education program, programs for limited English proficient students and for migrant education, the state disadvantaged child project, Title IV civil rights programs, and measures for homeless children and youth. Section III on student services and early childhood education describes the Child Development Specialist position, residential youth care centers, student retention activities, the parent education program, the Oregon prekindergarten program, guidance and counseling programs, student activities, and health services.
