Counselors in Special Education.
Doyle, William C.
The functions of special education counselors were ranked in order of decreasing importance by educators in public schools throughout Texas. Questionnaires were mailed to 198 educators in 25 school districts; 79% of the subjects participated. Participating were 45 special education counselors, 19 directors of special education, 50 principals involved with special education counselors, and 43 experienced special education teachers. Median rankings and extension of the median tests (chi squares calculated) were used to evaluate the rankings. Overall general categories of counselor functions were ranked as follows: student counseling; student appraisal; consulting and counseling with parents; consulting with school staff members, and planning and development (both ranked as equally important); educational and occupational planning; public relations; and research and evaluation.
