Updated Five Year Plan for Special Education Services.
Fairfax County Schools, VA.
Outlined is the 5-year plan (1973-78) for public school special education services (preschool through post high school) in Fairfax County, Virginia. Included are a brief statement of the school division's philosophy of special education and a summary of a survey of nine categories of handicapped children showing how many are or are not being served by various types of programs. Detailed report forms are included on the educable mentally retarded, trainable mentally retarded, hearing-impaired, visually impaired, emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, physically handicapped, speech handicapped, and multiply handicapped. Reports on each disability population include: a specific report (from the survey of handicapped children) on how many children are or are not being served in various types of programs at various age levels; program plans for each of 5 years which include specific problem areas (such as need for music therapy for the mildly retarded or insufficient itinerant therapist time to eliminate waiting lists) matched with objectives and activities; the number of instructional and paraprofessional personnel (current and projected) matched with the number of children served; and the number of current and projected programs, whether self-contained, resource, or itinerant, serving that handicap area on each educational level. Also included are brief discussions of special provisions for materials, transportation, cooperation with other school divisions or agencies, and plans for program evaluation. (LC)
