Special Education and Pupil Services in RESA X. 1968.
Joint County System of Cedar, Johnson, Linn, and Washington Counties, Cedar Rapids, IA.
Supported by Title VI funds, this study focuses on the kind and extent of help recommended for handicapped children, specifically in one Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA X) in Iowa. Three major considerations were: (1) How should RESA X relate to local school districts in developing programs for exceptional children; (2) What aid can RESA X provide local school districts to improve their special education offerings?; and (3) How should RESA X organize to carry out its special education role? The report concludes that RESA should strengthen local school districts and enhance their self-sufficiency. Three kinds of help are needed: (1) help in dealing with managerial problems, (2) help to establish and operate programs for exceptional children, and (3) help in providing pupil services. Finally, it was recommended that RESA should establish a Division of Special Education and Pupil Services. It should appoint a Director for that Division, and also set up a Child Study Center with the Director. (Author/KP)
