Florida State Plan for the Education of Exceptional Students: 1974-75.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Students.
The 1974-75 Florida special education (SE) plan assesses SE efforts to date as the basis for projections regarding future educational needs and budget requirements. An overview of state planning efforts provides data on such topics as state goals and commitment; constraints in implementing a statewide program; and the rationale for development of the 1975 document on projected activities. Charted are current educational needs and projected activities (analyzed according to categories of product, process, and status) regarding the following handicapped populations: mentally retarded, learning disabled, emotionally disturbed, socially maladjusted, physically handicapped, visually impaired, deaf-blind, deaf and hard of hearing, speech and language impaired, and gifted. A problem area in the education of the deaf, for instance, is said to be lack of parent information/education from the time the child is suspected of being hearing impaired until he completes his educational program. The continuation and expansion of vocational education programs for trainable mentally retarded students is an example of a projected activity. (LH)
