Special Education in the West; Report of a Regional Survey by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.
Hensley, Gene; McAlees, Daniel
The report is based on a survey conducted in 1968 and 1969, involving university and state special educators in 13 western states, which provided estimates of need, demand, and supply of special education personnel. Data is supplied for the following: number of children in the west receiving special education in 1967-68, incidence of exceptionalities, number of special educators employed in 1968-69, training programs offered in each area during 1968-69, and sequences of training programs (1967-68) by colleges and by area of exceptionality. A related table presents this information for 1958-59. Fulltime enrollments in western training programs and special degrees granted and sequences completed are shown for the decade 1958-1968. The number of students receiving financial support in 1967-68 and the numbers of faculty in 1968-69 and 1958-59 are reported. Summary sheets for each individual state are also included. (RJ)
