A Study on Developing a Network System for Handicapped Children in the Community.
RIEEC Report, v38 p91-98 Feb 1989
In Japan, the educational and treatment facilities for handicapped children in the community have poor interagency communication and lack consistent policies concerning developmentally handicapped children. A community care network is being established for these children in Koganei City, supported by a research institute and a local government. The network is working to: (1) develop a screening system for handicapped children at the age of 18 months; (2) develop an early intervention system for young handicapped children, covering assessment, development of individualized educational treatment programs, development of educational programs for small classes and for use at home by parents, and evaluation of the child's development; and (3) develop a network system for handicapped children, with interagency meetings held on a regular basis.
