Synergism for the Seventies-Conference Proceedings of the National Conference for State Planning Advisory Councils on Services and Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled.
Gettings, Robert M., Ed.
Presented are 37 position papers and two addresses given at the national conference of the National Advisory Council on Services and Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled in November, 1972. Cited are conference objectives to encourage understanding and effective implementation of the Developmental Disabilities Act of 1970, provide technical assistance in planning and evaluating services for the disabled, strengthen communications among state and national council members and staff, and provide a forum for issues related to extention and modification of the Act. The principal addresses urge action on behalf of individuals disabled developmentally in childhood, and explain fiscal synergism in the Office of Management and Budget to advance the nation's social goals, respectively. Seven papers focus on planning and evaluation of programs at the community and state levels, while three papers center on reaching special populations among the developmentally disabled. Use of federal resources through programs such as the vocational rehabilitation state plan, maternal child health plan, and the Social Security Act is discussed in nine papers. Two papers give information on state legislative and administrative action. Delineated in five papers are special services related to such factors as residential arrangements and transportation. Future national strategy is the subject of three papers, and delivery of services is examined in four papers. State advisory programs and sources of funds for innovative programs are both covered with two papers. (MC)
